Last Sunday at the Royal Windsor Horse Show, members of the British Driving Society gathered for a drive through Windsor Home Park and a Concours d’Elegance competition. Following with the tradition of this annual drive, the group was led by HRH Prince Phillip, driving HM The Queen’s team of Fell ponies.

After all the rain and mud of the previous few days, and the unfortunate cancellation of Friday’s coaching marathon, the participants in the BDS drive couldn’t have asked for a prettier day.

I was able to get photos of several of the turnouts while they were lined up on the road after their drive; driving down the road; in a collecting arena; and (the winner of the first-place ribbon) in the main arena.

Enjoy!
