Equestrian has a far-reaching and extremely cultivated tradition in England. Probably the most famous of all horse races, the Royal Ascot, goes back to the Queen Anne and has been carried out regularly since 1711. But not only racing, hunting, jumping, versatility, and polo sports are closely interwoven with English history. Horse riding lessons are being taken by kids, teenagers, adults and even elderly people.
The polosport, for example, is the most popular team sport in the UK, alongside football and cricket. Events such as “Cartier International Day” in July attract up to 30,000 spectators. Horses and sporting results are probably the second most important part of these events – the majority of visitors come from a social perspective.
Not only in film and television is the ‘Racing Day’ a welcome occasion to display both the finest English manners and exquisite robes.

Request is a distant courtesy and regular recurring, informal phrases. Slips and improper behavior are meticulously noted. As for all social events, there is also a dresscode for the spectators of the horse sport. Here too the Royal Ascot with its strict regulations is the guiding principle – the gentleman wears ‘morning dress’, a suit, if possible in the covered ascot gray, consisting of cutaway and cylinder. Women are also recommended ‘respectable’ clothing, naturally crowned by a hat. Still, racing dress and matching hat are a status symbol, not only for the lady from a good house, also for the gentlemen by her side. The most extravagant hats are displayed in particular on the Gold Cup Day, also known as Ladies’ Day.
