Congratulations to the Royal Couple!

Congratulations to the Royal Couple!

Loved all the horses!
The only stumble in the entire procession was an uncommon fall from one of the horses.
I guess the cheering crowd was too much for this fellow!

Runaway: The horse threw its rider before leaving the cavalry procession and bolting up Whitehall

 Homing sense: The riderless creature careers alongside the procession - but eventually found its way home to the stables at Horse Guards¿ Barracks

Fortunately, neither horse or it's 19yr old rider appeared to be hurt, and the horse made straight for home – the stables of the Horse Guards’ Barracks further up Whitehall .

Thank you for the update with the Horse Guard that came off his horse. I just happened across the story online, and hope the rider is ok. I hope he's not in hot water with his commanding officer, but then of course all horseman understand the possibilities. I'm sure he'd hoped for fonder memories of the day, but at least it's unforgetable.
