This silver equestrian statuette shows Queen Elizabeth II attending the annual Trooping of the Colour ceremony on her famous horse, Burmese. She is wearing the military uniform of the Colonel-in-Chief of the Grenadier Guards with a specially designed cap and hackle. She rides side-saddle with the reins of the double bridle in her left hand. Signed ‘Amy Goodman’ and ‘Vivien Mallock’ and assay marks for 2022 including the Jubilee mark. (Number 1 of a limited edition.) English. 

Trooping the Colour has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years. The Queen leads other members of her family and a cavalcade of over 200 horses to inspect 1400 parading foot soldiers and 400 musicians, all in ceremonial dress and bearskin caps. After a great display of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare, the celebration ends with an RAF fly-past. From her first appearance as princess in 1947 and throughout her reign as queen until 1986, Queen Elizabeth has attended the ceremony on horseback. Initially, she rode a bay police horse named Tommy and after the death of her father, King George VI, she rode his chestnut horse Winston and later one called Imperial. However, her most loyal partner was the black mare, Burmese, a gift from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The Queen rode Burmese for eighteen consecutive years and since the mare’s eventual retirement in 1987, Her Majesty has attended in a carriage.
