I really couldn't care less about the nuptials at Westminster today, though I wish the newlyweds well. What interests me are the Cleveland Bays and Windsor Greys - the equines that make up the Queen's Royal Mews. A long time ago, I rode at a barn that was home to F Troop. No, not the hapless regiment that was the stuff of a hilarious comedy in the 60's. F Troop actually stood for First City Troop and contained a hodge-podge of horses, most of them rejects, used by the City of Philadelphia for parades and other special occasions. It was a miracle none of the riders were ever maimed or killed because the beasts that comprised this entourage were nothing like the well-trained, well-bred and perfectly-behaved steeds that live in service of Her Royal Majesty.
