The Queen of England smiled as she received the gift of a rare horse 🐎
The Queen of England, 96, was presented with a rare Karabakh horse in the courtyard of Windsor Castle a day ago surprising royal followers.
The horse was a gift from President Ilham Aliyev after his country was invited to perform at the recent Platinum celebrations.
Karabakh horses of Azerbaijani origin are used for endurance races and events. The Karabakh horse is culturally significant to the people of Azerbaijan.
This breed is prized for temperament and speed; In 2004, a Karabakh horse named Kishmish from Azerbaijan’s Agdam camp ran 1,000 meters in 1 minute 9 seconds and 1,600 meters in 1 minute 52 seconds.
The Queen, who has a lifelong fascination with horses, described the gesture as “Very kind and very generous.”
Just the perfect gesture for a venerable Queen!!.❤️
Horses and riders came to the arena to entertain the crowds, with Azerbaijani performers among the 1,300 participants.
The Horse Show hosted the Platinum Jubilee Celebration event ‘A Gallop Through Time’ on the last day of the event, which featured Azerbaijani artists.
The lavish event, broadcast nationally, featured a host of famous faces, including Tom Cruise and Helen Mirren, and provided guests with a range of musical and acting performances. .
What an appropriate and thoughtful gift for the Queen. As a rare breed, we are sure that this horse will be well taken care of. Your Majesty is sure to be pleased with this special gift!
A great horse for a venerable Queen.❤️
HerMajesty’s greatness and joy is in her smile.
