Smiles for dad! Baby Lucas Tindall, who turned one last month, looked thrilled to be in his father Mike’s arms as they watched Zara at the event yesterday 

The royal, who won a Silver medal at the 2012 London Olympics, was beaming as she rode her horse Showtime, a nine-year old mare she co-owns with three fellow equestrians. 

Zara, who is married to former rugby player Mike Tindall, 43, was joined yesterday by her husband and three children, who proudly cheered her on at the event. 

Zara, who gave birth to youngest son Lucas in March last year, sported a navy jacket with white riding slacks and black boots which she paired with a blue helmet as she sat horseback. 

Sticking to a regal look, the daughter of Princess Anne wore minimal make-up, and tied her long blonde hair up under her helmet. 

This is the royal’s second day at the event. Yesterday she was cheered on by husband Mike and their three children Mia, eight, Lena, three, and Lucas, one. 

Eight-year-old daughter Mia was on typically boisterous form tore across the grass, followed by her little sister Lena, three.  

Who needs a climbing frame? Father-of-three Mike Tindall had his hands full as he took his children to the Burnham Market International Horse Trials yesterday. Eight-year-old Mia clambered on his shoulders while Lena lay back on his lap

The girls were in fits of giggles as they piled on top of their dad on the grass and went head-to-head on inflatable bumper cars.

But it was their baby brother Lucas who stole the show, smiling broadly as he was scooped up in his father’s arm for a cuddle.  

Ex-England rugby ace Mike looked every inch the proud father as he gazed lovingly at Lucas, who celebrated his first birthday last month.  

In 2020, Zara described how riding for her country is what ‘dreams are made of’ and how she is lucky to have her horses with her in lockdown.

The silver Olympic medal-winning equestrian lives on her mother Princess Anne’s Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire.

She told a royal special edition of Horse & Hound magazine that she enjoys the pressure of competing.

She said: ‘I love riding for my country; those have been the best experiences of my career, to get your horse to that level is what it’s all about, and what we all strive for,’ she said at the time. 

‘I love the big occasion because I love the pressure – sitting on a horse that you know is good enough, you are fully prepared, riding for your country, it’s what your dreams are made of.
