Zara Phillips Is A Multi-Tasking Pro On Family Day Out With Mia

Zara Phillips proved herself to be the queen of multitasking at the Salperton Park Horse Trials in Gloucestershire at the weekend.

The 33-year-old was spotted expertly juggling baby girl Mia and an ice cream cone while all dolled up in equestrian attire before taking up her place in the saddle to compete.

While baby Mia was cute as a button in pale blue separates complete with a teeny tiny straw sunhat, Zara must have been sweltering in her full riding gear. No wonder she needed to store the ice cream in her mouth!

The former world eventing champion has landed a place in the Great Britain squad for the World Equestrian Games later this summer - so you can expect more pics like this to come.

In 2012, the horse lover became the very first member of the royal family to win an Olympic medal as part of Team GB.

And now her qualification into the Equestrian Games - which kicks off in August - means she has a chance to represent old Blighty at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

When asked about her riding career, the Queen's granddaughter recently said: "It's fantastic to be part of a team again."

She told the BBC her horse - expertly named High Kingdom - just keeps getting fitter and fitter.

"High Kingdom has improved each year and every time I've taken him to a big competition he's got better and better."
