Yeti served with The Life Guards for 19 years. During this time he participated in many ceremonial parades including Trooping the Colour, State Visits and Queen’s Life Guard. This 16.1hh black beauty has also had the honour of travelling abroad where he performed as part of the world famous Musical Ride in the Middle East and Europe.

 

During the musical ride, 4 of the horses are ridden by the ‘Monkey Men’ and are trained to lie down as part of the performance. This finale also includes these 4 horses carrying in the flags of the United Kingdom whilst cantering with pride! Horses are specially selected for this role as they have to be very responsive to the rider.

 

Yeti was extremely fast and was chosen to carry the Union Jack and was the last horse to leave the arena at full gallop accompanied by the patriotic song, ‘Land of Hope and Glory’. This prestigious accolade was always well received, receiving many standing ovations from their audience. This 23 year old gelding certainly has made an impression with his stunning looks and powerful presence.
