A top five placing in the second leg of the 2014 Nations Cup CICO3* series boosted Lincolnshire-based Rosalind ‘Ros’ Canter and her own 10 year old Dutch-bred gelding Zenshera into the top of the recently launched Britannia League with 20 points. This result means that Ros is currently in contention for the £5000 Britannia League prize at the end of the season.
Ros who is aged just 28 made her debut on to the British Nations Cup CICO squad over the weekend at Ballindenisk in County Cork. She commented on the Britannia League: “It’s really great to be in with a shout of leading a league which recognises your achievements when you don’t have the strength in depth of a lot of the top British riders who have multiple horses at three or four star.
“I have a lot of young horses coming up through the ranks so it’s lovely to be rewarded for my achievements with them as well and also acknowledge their incredibly supportive Owners.” Ros also appears further down the rankings in joint second place with Caroline Moore’s Allstar B and is pictured above with a former ride, Ziloma.
This unique league was launched to reward British owners and their riders and horses riding at three star level, who have not yet registered a result under the British flag at Senior Championship level and is calculated using the British Eventing points system.
