THE Queen is back riding in a remarkable comeback that will cheer the nation.
Her Maj, 96, has been for gentle trips in Windsor — nine months after she was told to quit.
Mobility problems kept her from Platinum Jubilee events but a Windsor Castle source said: “The Queen has enjoyed being on her horse again.”
The Archbishop of YorkStephen Cottrell touched on her love of riding at her thanksgiving service saying: “We are so glad you are still in the saddle and we are all glad there is still more to come.
“So thank you for staying the course.”
The Castle source added: “The Queen had missed her riding over these nine months.
“She had been able to whizz around the castle’s Quadrangle in her golf buggy to walk her corgis.
“Riding again is a wonderful sign after all those worries we had about her health. To be able to do so at 96 is pretty remarkable.”
The Queen has been a keen horsewoman since getting her first pony aged three in 1929.
She is expected to travel to her Holyroodhouse next week as senior royals carry out engagements.
