Question: Has The Queen’s love for horses influenced you?

Dear Monty,

I honor your answer, your deep respect for Her Majesty the Queen (and The Queen Mother) and your deep understanding of horses and the mistakes humans make that can cause tragic accidents with horses through their LACK of understanding. [Refer to the January 29, 2020 Ask Monty edition ]

In my family, we have always loved the Royal Family. We are related through my English branch of the family to Mrs. Campbell-Preston, who was Lady in Waiting to The Queen Mother. The story of The Queen Mother’s inviting you to England that first time and how moved she was to witness your Join-Up® work is a precious one I carry in my heart. Queen Elizabeth’s love of horses is such an integral part of who she is, in particular her passion for horse breeding, as you know.

I personally would like to thank you for all you have given to deepen everyone’s understanding of Equus.

With great respect and love,
Martha Magee

Monty’s Answer:

Dear Martha,

Thank you very much for your supportive communication regarding my answer. We must remember that Queen Elizabeth is the most influential world leader in all of our history, both for animals and for humans. The Queen’s love of horses has been, and will be for a long time in the future, a positive factor in equine welfare.
