Princess Beatrix still on horseback!

It sounds almost unbelievable, but it’s really true: Princess Beatrix still rides a horse at the age of 85! Although she may no longer gallop, because she adds: “I still ride a horse, but calmly…” But yes, the love for the noble four-legged friends started at a very young age. At the age of nine she already rode a pony alongside her father Prince Bernard in the garden of Soestdijk Palace. She was also regularly photographed riding alongside her sister Princess Irene. Even at an advanced age, Beatrix still enjoys driving the trailer from the Royal Stables of The Hague to the beaches of Wassenaar and Katwijk in good weather for a refreshing horse ride along the sea.

Amalia also shares the love

Beatrix has passed on her love for horses to her granddaughter Amalia. It is not for nothing that the crown princess said in her biography to Claudia de Breij: “On a horse I am most who I really am. If you really want to get to know me, you have to see me drive.” This also applies to her grandmother Beatrix, who has enjoyed horse riding all her life and no matter what well-intentioned advice she may receive from those around her, she really doesn’t seem to be planning to give up that love.
