Aurora

Aurora III is a sport horse and was owned by Her Majesty the Queen.  Aurora was bred at The Royal Paddocks at Hampton Court and lived there for 20 years until her retirement to The Horse Trust in 2010.  Ridden during her working life by both HM The Queen and also The Trust’s patron, Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal, she was also backed for side saddle befitting her very lady-like character. During her time at Hampton Court she produced two very nice foals and we are very proud that she is now part of our retired herd of horses at the sanctuary.
