Like father, like son!
According to a new report, Prince George was extremely delighted when he recently climbed aboard a Shetland Pony for his first-ever horse ride in Norfolk, England — and royal sources even revealed he has taken to riding like a duck on water!
The two-year-old's passion for ponies comes from his father, Prince William, who has been riding since age four. William, 33 — who is now an expert polo player — received a Shetland Pony named Smokey from his late mother, Princess Diana, and father, Prince Charles, as a child.

Although George shouldn't expect Santa to deliver a horse of his own this Christmas due to his mother, Kate Middleton's allergies, his parents were both still there to support him on his first ride.
"William and Kate were keen to get George on a horse once he was walking confidently," an insider told the Daily Mail. "George loved his first ride — he was led around a paddock on a rein and shrieked with delight. William and Kate were both there to watch."
