Mobility issues kept her from attending Platinum Jubilee events, but a Windsor Castle source said: “The Queen has enjoyed being back on her horse.”

Archbishop of York Stephen Cottrell spoke about her love of horseback riding at her thanksgiving service, saying: “We are so glad you are still in the saddle and we are all glad there is more to come.

“So thanks for staying the course.”

The source from the castle added: “The Queen had missed her riding these nine months.

“She’d been able to zip around the square of the castle in her golf buggy to walk her corgis.

“Being able to ride again is a wonderful sign after all the concerns we’ve had about her health. To be able to do that at 96 is quite remarkable.”

The Queen has been a keen horse rider since she got her first pony in 1929 at the age of three.

She is expected to travel to her Balmoral estate next week while senior royals hold engagements.
