Meg retired to our Home of Rest for Horses in October 2023, after 15 noble years of service with the Royal Mews. As a Windsor Grey, Meg was a Ceremonial Carriage horse, where she drew the carriages in which the monarch, other members of the Royal Family and guests travel. She was so reliable that she was trusted to be a ‘Wheel Horse’ on many occasions (those nearest the wheels, which do the majority of the pulling), alongside her brother, Tyrone.

During Meg’s career, she attended many major events such as State Visits, State openings, Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, Credentials and Royal Ascot. Meg’s most recent claim to fame was pulling the Gold State Coach which carried His Majesty King Charles after the coronation in Near Wheel position.

Standing at 17.3hh, Meg’s heart is certainly as big as her height, known for being quiet, straightforward and incredibly gentle. Since joining our herd alongside fellow Royal Mews retiree, Belfast, Meg’s charming personality has shone through, and it’s safe to say we’re all absolutely smitten. We’re honoured to give this beautiful lady plenty of neck scratches, lush green grass and the peaceful retirement she deserves amongst the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire.
