the Queen Riding Horses
October 7, 2006
This is a story
that you will probably only be able to read on
SeniorARK.com. Your editor
heard former secretary of state James Baker being interviewed
on a TV newscast very early this morning. He relayed a true
story that he witnessed on a trip with former President Ronald
Reagan on a visit with Queen Elizabeth during his presidency.
Reagan was with the Queen at Windsor Castle
one morning, and since he and the Queen shared a love for
horses, they decided to go horseback riding together. Some
distance from the Castle, as Reagan was following the Queen up
a small grade, the Queen's horse decided to loudly expel some
gas in sync with each step.
Queen turned around and said. "Oh I am so sorry Mr.
"No problem your
majesty", replied Reagan, "I thought it was the horse!"
Baker swears this is a true story. And to
think, England is still our friend.
