High Hopes For High Kingdom

Zara Phillips was nominated for the British Olympic Team this past weekend after a stellar performance at the Bramham aboard mount ‘High Kingdom’. The royal is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II, and will attempt to emulate the successes of parents Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips, both of whom competed for the British team previously.

Due to the fact that the olympics will be taking place soon, look forward to more great olympic riding updates!
