On the 21st December, The Countess of Wessex accompanied by her daughter, Lady Louise, attended the International Horse Show at London Olympia. Judging from the few pics released by the PA Agency, Sophie & Louise attended day five of the show and she and her daughter observed The FEI Driving World Cup Presented By Dodson & Horrell.Embed from Getty Images
I have searched internet for a long time but I cannot find a single “official” word on HRH’s participation in this event, perhaps she and Louise were there privately, since Lady Louise herself is learning a carriage driving, it’s a passion she inherited after her grandfather, The Duke of Edinburgh.

Olympia is the only UK Show to host all three FEI World Cup Qualifiers in Dressage, Show Jumping and Driving. Each performance includes an equestrian competition along with a variety of displays from around the World. Held in the Olympia Exhibition Centre, the London International Horse Show celebrated its 100th Anniversary in 2007 as ‘one of Europe’s oldest equine competitions’.
