for Horseman's Sunday as your favourite British event.

At noon on the third Sunday of September, the vicar of St John's Church appears before his congregation on a horse in the well established St John's tradition known as Horseman's Sunday.
The Reverend Stephen Mason traditionally leads a cavalcade of over 100 horses and riders to the church in order to celebrate horse riding in the heart of London.
A DignitaryThe horses gather on the forecourt of the church for a blessing, followed by a ride-past and a presentation of rosettes. Alongside the crowds, the event is usually attended by the Lord Mayor of Westminster, local MPs, councillors, and community leaders, and representatives of the equestrian community.
