26. As an equestrian (hunt seat) I can affirm that riding is excellent exercise.

Even though now she rides a smaller, sure footed Fell pony rather than a large horse, she is getting an excellent workout. Riding involves strength and balance. Most 95 year olds donít ride.
Unlike other sports, riding can be a lifelong pursuit.

The Queen could be seen riding around Home Park, next to Windsor Castle, over the weekend, wearing a green jacket and a colorful scarf.

The images, released Sunday, feature the monarch riding Balmoral Fern, a 14-year-old fell pony, according to a Buckingham Palace news release.
