The Olympian equestrian rider Zara Tindall has returned to competitive riding just two months after giving birth to daughter Lena Elizabeth.


On June 18, Zara, 37, welcomed daughter Lena with husband former rugby star Mike Tindall, 39.

The Queen's granddaughter was spotted recently riding her horse Class Affair at the three-day eventing trial at Somerford Park over the weekend. It's just eight weeks since she gave birth to her second daughter, as reported by People.

Zara looked confident and relaxed as she took the course, ruling each of its obstacles. It seems that she has no plans of hanging up her riding hat anytime soon.

The mother-of-two won a silver medal for the team competition at the 2012 Olympics. The award was given to her by her mother Princess Anne, who competed in the 1976 Games.

After the event, Zara joined Mike and daughters baby Lena and Mia to travel to Balmoral.

The couple enjoyed a rare outing when they accompanied Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip to church over the weekend.

Other royals who were seen at the state are Prince Charles, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Edward, and his wife Sophie Wessex.


Zara, who was named Sports Personality of the Year in 2006, and Mike welcomed baby Lena after the 37-year-old suffered two tragic miscarriages.

In May 2017, Mike told The Sunday Times: “The saving grace for us has been Mia, our daughter who is now 3."

“However down we feel, she will come running up in our faces. When I was playing I hardly saw her; now we can see her grow up. I can take her swimming, and I can take her to Ninja Tots."

He added: "You’ll never be able to see her there because she disappears in a puff of smoke.”

In a recent interview with People, the proud royal father said that his family life after the birth of Lena was "brilliant so far.”
