IT'S A VERY SAD DAY HERE AT WESTON LAWNS


Flags at Half-mast as a mark of respect to the passing of our Queen, Elizabeth II.


The passing of her majesty Queen Elizabeth will be mourned by many, but perhaps none more so than those who share her passion for horses. The lead given by the royal family was a crucial factor in the huge growth of riding as a widely popular sport in Britain in the early post-war years of economic austerity.


Her generation was brought up during the deprivations of World War II, and it was by no means guaranteed that equestrianism would blossom in the aftermath of such conflict. The queen was a renowned horsewoman, and her dedication to the sport helped ensure that it flourished in spite of the challenges faced by postwar Britain. We are all in her debt, and horse lovers everywhere will mourn her passing.


In her seven decades on the throne, the effect of The Queen’s love of horses has extended not only to her family, but to the equestrian world at large, and its no secret that she wanted to be around horses as often as possible.


All the thoughts and deepest condolences from everyone at Weston Lawns goes out to the Royal family at this time. It's a very sad day here at Weston Lawns 😪
