Prince George and Princess Charlotte take part in a long tradition of the royal family: horseback riding!

The royal siblings are known to have been honing their riding skills over the past year.

Prince William is reportedly "thrilled" that his children have shown an interest in learning to ride, according to the British newspaper The Times.

Seven-year-old George reportedly has been taking lessons since he was four, and five-year-old Charlotte has always had a passion for horses.

Attending an event to welcome and honor British Olympians at Buckingham Palace in October 2016, Kate revealed that Charlotte, then 1 year old, fell in love with horses, just like her great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

Kate “emphasized that Charlotte has this passion for horses, and while she does not share it, she will do her best to become a champion and support her,” said Natasha Baker, a Para-Equestrian at the time.

Queen Elizabeth received her first Scottish pony for her 4th birthday, and her love for horses continues throughout her life. At 94, she is still an avid rider and breeder. Monarch also attends the Windsor Equestrian Show every year and is known to get quite energetic watching horse races, including the Royal Ascot Races.

The Queen's daughter, Princess Anne, and granddaughter Zara Tyndall also share the monarch's passion. Anna became the first of the royal family to compete in the Olympics when she competed in a three-day equestrian event at the 1976 Montreal Games. In her footsteps, Anna's daughter, Zara Tyndall, competed in the 2012 Olympics and won a silver medal for the UK Eventing Team.
