Just over a month after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Buckingham Palace has released a new photo of her favourite fell pony Emma, and revealed details about the monarch’s riding habits.
“For the past 15 years, Queen Elizabeth has ridden pony Emma regularly for a light workout in the grounds of Windsor Castle,” a tweet from the palace announced accompanying a photo of the black pony.

At the formal funeral held in the grounds of Windsor Castle on September 19, pony Emma and the Queen’s two corgis, Muick and Sandy, had been waiting for the arrival of their mistress’s coffin.
