The stamp on the miniature sheet shows Her Majesty being presented with the horse Burmese by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police when they came to the UK to perform in the Royal Windsor Horse Show in 1969. Burmese had huge ceremonial importance having been ridden by HM Queen for the Trooping the Colour from 1969 until 1986. There is also a statue of Her Majesty riding Burmese at the Saskatchewan Legislative Building in Regina, Canada.
This wonderful collectable is available in mint condition or cancelled to order.
