Zara Phillips competing at the Olympics
Zara Phillips is already setting her sights on getting an Olympic gold medal in 2016.
Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter won silver in the Equestrian Eventing competition last week but is already thinking about the next games, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2016.
Her husband, Mike Tindall, told the Sunday Express newspaper: 'Her horse, High Kingdom, has still got a good seven or eight years left in him so of course she wants to take him to Rio if she can.
'There is still a lot she wants to achieve. It certainly doesn't end here.'
Zara, 31, is still relatively young for her sport, but has been reported to be planning to start a family with Mike before turning her attention to the next Olympics.
One insider said: 'She could have a couple of kids and still be ready to compete in Rio in 2016. In many ways, it's perfect timing.'
However, England rugby star Mike and Zara have been so busy, they've not even found time to go on a honeymoon after tying the knot on July 30 last year.
Mike said: 'We cannot go on holiday now as she's competing over the summer and I have just started training. Maybe some time next year!'
