I was watching the horse drawn gun carriage bit, was fascinated by the horse that wanted to turn around.. Laughing I am usually caught up in ceremony and cry buckets, it just isn't happening with this one though.

Yes, what was with that horse at the back?... he was constantly nibbling at the one next to him, or so it looked like? lol...... I bet them riders sat on each pair were holding their breath all went ok?..... and them fellas carrying the coffin up the steps of St Pauls were sweating buckets!!!!!..... scared shitless of dropping her probably? lol

They said on TV that there was a problem when the carriage reached Ludgate Hill, something was thrown at the Horses to spook them, from then on it appeared the horses were jittery because of the flowers thrown in the road.

In some of the preamble before the procession, David Dimbleby spoke about the horses. Apparently, they are trained to draw gun carriages for displays but when they do that they are cantering at quite a fast pace, which is what they are accustomed to. For this, they had to be trained to walk at the specified pace of the procession, which I think he said was 70 paces a minute.

I suppose then the horses were probably just wondering when they were going to be allowed to let rip and pick up the pace. Maybe they were just a bit puzzled by the whole event and were looking around for some sort of signal or indication about breaking into a faster stride.

They looked amateurs on the job tbh, lol........... more suited to a Donkey Derby perhaps! Laughing ........ beautiful conditon they all looked love

Hundreds of protesters turned their back on Margaret Thatcher's funeral procession on Wednesday during a highly charged but peaceful demonstration.

People gathered at Ludgate Circus near the end of the route, where organisers had called for a silent protest against Thatcher and her policies.

Dozens, not hundreds as far as I can tell. The ones wearing the false noses looked particularly stupid.
Dozens of protesters are hundreds to the media. Just as thousands of protesters are hundreds to the police.

No, I wasn't there but I read a report which is apparently at odds with the one you read... and as you say, maybe the media are exaggerating. From what I saw on TV, the protests were very low-key and barely visible or audible. If there had truly been hundreds, I think it would have been hard not to see or hear them.

So you know no more than me then. Fine.

Around 300 demonstrators gathered at Ludgate Circus, at the intersection of Fleet Street and Farringdon Street, to show their opposition to Lady Thatcher's policies and the cost of her funeral.

"There was absolutely no objective in this protest at whatsoever."

The purpose was to poison the well, which the protests succeeding in doing. Politics, Dimps, politics.

I think there would have been justification to protest at the cost, after all, we are supposed to be skint.

About 2,000 people have gathered in Goldthorpe for the anti-Thatcher protest. The crowd seems to be good natured.

These horses wouldn't be spooked by flowers being thrown at them, or bottles or tin can or stones or etc...
But they would have needed more than a week to be trained to walk slowly pulling the gun carriage. Seems the decision to hold this ceremonial funeral was a surprise to more than just the general public...

I'm surprised, surely there must be horses around who are used to pulling carriages at slow speed, they seemed to manage ok with Diana's funeral if I recall correctly.

This will have been Team 'B' or even team 'C' these guys are in training and almost there, just need experience. With the Queen and Prince Philip getting on in years, the 'A' team will be in perfect form, and not being put at risk of being injured. Her Mags has probably even chosen them herself.

Exactly, even if Cameron was attempting to make it seem she was, so she would not have been given the team of horses that will be used if the Queen dies.... Especially with such a high risk of violence at Thatchers funeral, they would just not have risked it.
