Windsor Horse Show.

I didn’t realise it was on when we moored up here.   It was a lot of fun.   Saw some major riders in the 6 Bar and also the Show Jumping Championships.  The 6 Bar is a straight line of jumps that get higher every round, a rail down is elimination, last man standing after round 5 is the winner, if there are multiple riders left the prize is shared.   Also if all riders agree in round 5 not to jump then they automatically share the prize.   For riders of that level you can imagine how high the jumps are for the majority of the to be eliminated by the last round.  We also spent some time watching the carriage racing.

Good people spotting.  Major Royalty big time – saw Her Maj!  There was also a King from one of the Arabic countries.  Saw them from a distance but they were there.
