Zara Tindall wows at the Chatsworth Horse Trials 

They are a family of horse lovers, and while a host of royals soaked up the atmosphere at the Royal Windsor Horse Show today, Zara Tindall took part in a show of her own.

Keen equestrian Zara, 35, wowed spectators as she showed off her showjumping skills at the Chatsworth International Horse Trails in Derbyshire on Sunday.

The Olympic silver medallist, who was riding Fernhill Facetime, displayed her athletic prowess as she competed in various rounds at the trials.

Dressed in jodhpurs and a tailored navy jacket with matching lapels, the Queen’s granddaughter looked every inch the athlete as she successfully guided her horse over a series of huge jumps.

Meanwhile, the Earl and Countess of Wessex cheered on their daughter Lady Louise Windsor, 13, as she competed at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in Berkshire. 

Proud parents Edward, 53 and Sophie, 52, were also on babysitting duties as they looked after a group of young royals including their nine-year-old son James, Viscount Servern, and great-nieces, Savannah and Isla Phillips.

Zara’s husband, rugby ace Mike Tindall, is often seen cheering her on from the sidelines with daughter Mia, but the pair were not spotted in the crowd at Chatsworth today.

Crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year in 2006 Zara won team silver at the 2012 Olympics in London on her horse High Kingdom.

She also has a host of other awards under her belt including individual and team gold at the European Eventing Championships in 2005 and individual gold and team silver at the World Equestrian Games in 2006. 

Zara’s career – and her lucrative endorsements of Land Rover and Rolex among others – is managed by her brother Peter Phillips, who, like his sister, has no royal title and receives no money from the public purse.

Last week, Zara was seen chatting away to Olympic star Amy Williams when the pair met up at a rugby match.
