Surrey Equestrians Unite to pay respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Surrey (and surrounding) equestrians joined together today, Monday 19th September 2022, at The Four Horseshoes on Chobham Common to pay respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Equipassion UK was there to capture the atmosphere of the day. As we approached the common and saw ponies with tiny riders smartly dressed in hacking jackets I struggled to hold myself together. There was a fantastic turn out of more than 60 well groomed horses and ponies with riders dressed smartly with touches of red, white and blue. The funeral was streamed on a PA system outside the pub and riders and those on foot watched live streams on their phones.
Organiser, Senna-Michelle Clements said "Thankyou to everyone who attended The Four Horseshoes Green today to pay respects to Queen Elizabeth II" "To see so many equestrians come together, her majesty would have loved it" "Thank You to Chobham Rugby Club, The Four Horseshoes and Rodney Dell."
Sarah Tombs commented "Was very emotional to see so many gather together" Michelle Philip said "Most fitting way to honour our queen"
