Zara Tindall appeared in her element today as she got in the saddle for another day of the Houghton International Horse Trials in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

The Queen‘s granddaughter, 41, a keen equestrian and Olympian, sported a blue racing jacket and white trousers for the event.

Zara, who shares Mia, eight, Lena, three and one-year-old Lucas with her husband, former rugby player Mike Tindall, was undertaking the cross-country section of the trials, riding her horse Class Affair.

Zara, who keeps a low profile, often at weekend sporting events chatting to other competitors,  was seen guiding Class Affair along expertly as the horse cantered cross country.

It comes after the royal, who does not have a HRH title, competed in yesterday’s dressage event, clad in more smart sportswear.

Zara, who does not have a HRH title,  launched her own website to celebrate her sporting success. The glossy new site – zaratindall.com – makes no mention of her royal connection.

The website was created by Equimi after Zara became a brand ambassador for the company, which designs online pages for equestrians.

The Queen‘s eldest granddaughter, who lives on her mother’s Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire, is an accomplished equestrian and Olympian, with the website noting her many accolades.

However, there is little mention of her family life, and no indication that her mother is the Princess Royal.

The page is also bannered by a Rolex advert, and lists and links to her many sponsors, including Landrover and Equine America.

Her bio reads: ‘Following the birth of her first child in January 2014, Zara was competing at the highest level once again just seven months later, going on to win a team silver medal at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Normandy. 

‘In April 2017 she finished third on High Kingdom at the Rolex Kentucky Three Day Event before going on to have her second child in Spring 2018. 

‘Since then Zara has been back competing regularly at National and International events.’

Zara also lists all eight of her current and former horses on the page, as well as a link to her results and a ‘news’ page with updates about her career.

Despite being the Queen’s eldest granddaughter, Zara doesn’t hold a HRH title and isn’t a working royal.   

Her deal with Equimi is the latest in a long line of sponsorships and brand collaborations for Zara, who is able to use her unique position of being a part of the royal family but not having a title to maximum advantage.

The mother-of-three is also a brand ambassador for Rolex and Musto, and has her own jewellery range with Australian brand Cajella, and experts have estimated they could be worth a combined £1.1m or more a year.

 Through their work, Zara and Mike have managed to enjoy a ‘normal’ life – at least within royal circles – and live with their daughters in relative privacy, but still reap the benefits of lucrative contacts that they have secured, at least in part, thanks to their positions within the royal family

The Tindalls also dedicate a significant amount of time to charitable causes and have phonebooks dotted with celebrity names.
