There were rumors that Kate Middleton is allergic to horses, but later people found out that the hobby simply isn't in her blood, Kate doesn't ride, purely because she didn't do it growing up.

Prince William and Prince Harry often ride horses in polo matches, Queen Elizabeth II knows her way around the stallions, and royal Zara Tindall is an Olympic equestrian.

Despite Kate not being a fan of horse riding, that doesn't mean she refrains from attending horse racing events such as Ascot. She never liked horse like all the royals, that's why she was never seen riding a horse. The reason that Kate doesn't ride is because it's not a part of the way she grew up.

"Kate said she's learning to ride so I offered to give her some lessons", the Paralympic victor said. Last year, Kate spoke to equestrian gold medallist Natasha Baker at a reception at Buckingham Palace and spoke of her kids' riding abilities.

Kate Middleton emphasized in the interview that Charlotte and George like horses.

"You have to pretend you're really interested in it", he said. "She emphasized that Charlotte has this passion about horses and although she doesn't echo it, she'll do her best to champion and encourage it".

Prince George, three, has also reportedly began learning how to horse ride, beginning lessons when he was just two. George loved his first ride - he was led around a paddock on a rein and shrieked with delight.

Since then, Prince William's image has been in the gutter, even more so than usual; most of the time, it's both Prince William and Kate Middleton coming under criticism for not working and staying at home and/or going on vacations all the time, especially on tax-payer money.
