Zara Phillips’ daughters love of horses
Britain’s Zara Phillips’ daughter has inherited her mother’s love of horses.
The granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth – who has 23-month-old daughter Mia with husband Mike Tindall – is an equestrian enthusiast, having achieved an silver medal as part of the eventing team in the 2012 London Olympic Games and her daughter is just as big a fan of the animal.
Her husband Mike Tindall told the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper: “Mia our daughter has inherited a love of horses. She has a Shetland pony and she enjoys it so I think her mum has passed that love on … me on the other hand, well I’m more of a football man.”
Meanwhile, Zara previously revealed she feels as though she makes “better decisions” since she has become a mother.
She said: “I think I might make better decisions now. When you are younger and less experienced, and with less around you to lose, you spend a lot of time competing everywhere, and riding all sorts of horses, and going to every possible competition.
“Now it’s much more a case of quality over quantity, and picking the right places to run at… So maybe you think about the bigger picture more, and make more calculated decisions.”
