Lady Louise accompanied her mother, the Countess of Wessex to the Burghley Horse trials this past weekend. The Royal mother and daughter were there in support of Zara Tindall, the Countess's niece, who was competing in the trials.

The Mother and Daughter duo are most often seen at equestrian or driving events together as both royals seem to have a love of the sport. Earlier this summer the Earl and Countess of Wessex were with both of their children at the Wild Place Project in Bristol. The Wessex's generally keep their children out of the public eye apart from family occasions.

The Windsor's love of horses is well known, Princess Anne and Zara Tindall competed in equestrian events in different Olympic Games and Lady Louise is becoming a skilled equestrian and carriage driver, having already competed in the British Driving Society Championship for Young Drivers. The Queen's youngest granddaughter had also been seen riding during the Wessex's annual summer holiday to Balmoral.

The Burghley Horse Trials is a popular equestrian event and usually marks the end of the summer season each year. While there, the Countess helped honor Sir Mark Todd and his horse which was retiring from competitive eventing.

Otherwise, the Countess and Lady Louise seemed to be enjoying quality time together and partook in some of the activities that were available. They had coordinated the outing, both of them sporting navy blue blazers, riding boots and over the shoulder bags.

Lady Louise is still in school and therefore is not seen in public very often, apart from family events. Her mother however, is a full time working royal and you can expect to see her calendar be more full with the summer holiday winding down and Royals returning to work.
