1. It’s someone’s job to stand beside Queen Elizabeth II and her horse
In the year 1340, the Master of the Horse position was created, Horse & Hound reported. While this position would’ve been of importance in centuries past, today the job is an honorary one. “The Master is no longer involved with the day-to-day running of [the Royal Mews] but still makes inspections and rides in ceremonial uniform at state occasions,” the publication explained.
