Royal Shetland Race for The Queen’s Birthday
A Royal Shetland Race in honour of The Queen’s 90th birthday took place earlier today, 9th May 2016, at Royal Windsor Racecourse. Six Shetland ponies charged down the Windsor straight over two and three quarter furlongs (approx. 550 metres), with all riders donning the distinctive and prestigious Royal jockey silks owned by Her Majesty The Queen. Each of the ponies were temporarily re-named after one of the Queen’s most successful racehorses and included the likes of a mini ‘Estimate’ whose great namesake famously won the Gold Cup at Royal Ascot in 2013.
Leading performance clothing brand MUSTO has joined forces with Royal Windsor Horse Show, for The Queen’s 90th birthday, as the event’s official clothing supplier. Known in the equestrian world for creating innovative garments inspired by the brands pioneering sailing ranges, it’s no wonder that MUSTO is a royal favourite.
