Martine Courage from the Pony Express outlined:

“While having tea with the Queen is often said in jest, this year, some lucky members of the Musical Ride got to do just that. The famed troop was invited to perform at the Queen’s birthday celebrations in May, which coincided with the Royal Windsor Horse Show. Thirty-nine members packed up their kit and 35 horses, taking the show to Windsor, England, to mark 90th birthday celebrations for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. The equestrian-themed event featured more than 900 horses and 1,500 performers from around the world, including the Musical Ride, which performed May 12 to May 15. For the special birthday, Commissioner Bob Paulson presented the Queen with Sir John, an eight-year-old gelding. This is the sixth horse that Canada has given to the Queen since 1969.”
