Britain's Queen Elizabeth, 94, pictured horseback riding during lockdown
The Queen could be seen riding around Home Park, next to Windsor Castle, over the weekend, wearing a green jacket and a colorful scarf.
The images, released Sunday, feature the monarch riding Balmoral Fern, a 14-year-old fell pony, according to a Buckingham Palace news release.
The Queen has long been known for her love of equestrian pursuits, including horse racing, and has regularly been photographed on horseback over the decades.
The monarch turned 94 in April but the traditional royal gun salute to celebrate her birthday was canceled for the first time in 68 years. A royal source told CNN that she felt it would be inappropriate due to the pandemic.
