Zara Phillips returns to day job
Mar 1, 2013, 12:03 GMT
Zara Phillips is to take part in this weekend's Isleham One Day event.
The 31-year-old royal - Queen Elizabeth's eldest granddaughter - is returning to her day job following her success at last summer's Olympics and is one of the star names to appear at the annual competition.
The event - which forms the start of the 2013 British Eventing calendar - will take place over both Saturday and Sunday with action starting at 8am on each day.
Horses play a huge part in Zara'a life and last year she agreed to help with the training of her husband's racehorse.
The blonde royal - who won a silver medal for Team GB in the three-day eventing competition at London 2012 - shared training duties of Monbeg Dude, the steeplechaser part-owned by Mike Tindall.
Michael Scudamore, the 28-year-old trainer of Monbeg Dude, the Racing Post: 'Mike spoke with Zara after the race and she thinks there are things she can do to improve his jumping. Sending problem jumpers to people connected with eventing seems to be the fashionable thing.
'You have to think that, if he can brush up his jumping, there will be plenty more improvement in him.'
