Canada gives King Charles a seven-year-old horse named Noble
The King was given a horse by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Noble, a seven-year-old black mare, is settling into the Royal Mews in Windsor, the palace said in a statement.
The horse, who stands 16.2 hands tall, toured with the “Mounties” musical Ride in 2022, where she participated in 90 public appearances in 50 different locations across Canada.
Raised and trained on the land, she got her name from the Mounties’ annual Name The Foal competition.
Charles is said to have been “delighted” to meet Noble at the Royal Mews earlier this week.
The move follows a long tradition of Mounties giving away horses to the royal family.
The relationship between the Royals and the force dates back to 1904 when King Edward VII bestowed the title of ‘Royal North-West Mounted Police’ on the North-West Mounted Police, making it the Royal North-West Mounted Police.
Eight horses were presented to Charles’ mother, the Queen, by the Mountie throughout her reign, beginning with Burmese in 1969.
The late monarch rode Burmese in Trooping the Color for 18 years.
She was an avid horse rider and, despite health advice, continued to ride as she got older.
