Zara Tindall issued a fresh statement after announcing an exciting new patronage.

Retraining of Racehorses (RoR), a charity dedicated to the welfare of retired racehorses, announced that Princess Anne's daughter will become their new Patron.

Zara is a renowned equestrian who was awarded a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympics.

The 42-year-old is also a dedicated advocate for equine welfare.

In a new statement, the mother-of-three said: "I am delighted to be joining Retraining of Racehorses as a Patron.

"The charity’s commitment to the well-being and retraining of retired racehorses resonates with my lifelong love for these magnificent animals.

"I look forward to working with RoR to promote their cause and helping them to make a positive impact in the racing and equine communities."

David Catlow, the Managing Director of RoR said: "We are thrilled that Zara has agreed to be our new Patron.

"Her extensive experience in the equestrian world, coupled with her dedication to racing, make her an ideal advocate for our charity.

"Together, we aim to raise awareness, funding, and support to ensure that retired racehorses receive the care and opportunities they deserve."

Zara, who married rugby professional Mike Tindall in 2011, achieved Individual Eventing World Champion status in 2006 at Aachen.

The 42-year-old frequently attends Ascot and Cheltenham this year and was even photographed at the latter over the weekend.

Zara's Patronage was officially announced at Cheltenham's November 2023 meeting on Saturday, November 18.

For this event, Zara wore a Rebecca Vallance "Dustin" Houndstooth belted coat along with Fairfax and Favor "The Soho" black suede-heeled boots.

To accessorise, she opted to carry an Aspinal of London Lottie pillow navy quilted lambskin clutch bag and wear a Hicks and Brown "The Oxley" Fedora hat in navy.

Mike Tindall's wife accepted a cheque on behalf of RoR from Sir Martin Broughton, as part of the official RoR Parade.
