The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment is enjoying its "summer camp" in Norfolk on Monday.

In a break from ceremonial duties and London city life, the cavalry are pictured on Holkham Beach on their first ride-out since the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Despite the beach setting and splashing around in the water, the move to Norfolk isn’t a holiday.

The regiment uses the wide-open spaces to practice equestrian and military skills, building bonds between horse and rider, and improving their prowess as professional soldiers.

The Knightsbridge-based cavalry is usually assigned to 24/7 duties as the Queen’s Life Guard in London.

The troops and the horses are based at Bodham Camp near Watton during their stay.
