Queen Elizabeth's Granddaughter Zara Tindall Falls off Horse at Burghley Horse Trials
While the Queen was attending the Braemar Gathering at The Princess Anne and Duke of Fife Memorial Park in Scotland, The Princess Royal was miles away from the event rooting for her daughter, Zara.
Zara was competing in the Burghley Horse Trials in Lincolnshire, and she had the support of her family throughout the event.
Her mother, Princess Anne, Timothy Laurence, Anne's husband, her husband, Mike, and her daughters Mia and Lena were all cheering for her from the sides.
ZARA HAD A FALL DURING THE EVENT
Zara was riding her horse, Class Affair, when she slipped from the animal and landed on her side.
Luckily for Zara, she was wearing an air vest which inflated when the tether detached and saved her from any injuries. She was able to walk away from the accident unharmed.
Though the fall was harmless, it might be a drawback for her considering that she gave birth two months ago.
