British riders named for Nations Cup 3rd leg

  • The squad that will represent Britain in the 3rd leg of the FEI Nations Cup Series, which is taking place on home soil at Houghton Hall, Norfolk (22-25 May), has been selected.

    The 4 team members have been named as:

    • Ros Canter (Zenshera)
    • David Doel (Koyuna Sun Magic, owned by the rider, Maggie Doel and Jane James)
    • Dani Evans (Smart Time, owned by Luana Edge)
    • Emily Llewellyn (Junior II, owned by Cindy Llewellyn)

    Britain currently lies in 2nd place in the overall Nations Cup rankings after the first 2 competitions this year with a total of 19 points. France leads with 20 points.

    All 4 members have received call-ups before, although David Doel has yet to compete in the series after the Polish leg, in which he was due ride last year, was cancelled.

    Team manager Philip Surl said of the team: “We were all thrilled with Ros Canter and Zenshera’s first result as part of the Nations Cup squad at Ballindenisk (team pictured top) where they finished in a very respectable 5th place.

    “David Doel and Koyuna Sun Magic have been a strong partnership for some time and Dani Evans showed a lot of promise on the Nations Cup squad last year where she and [her other horse] Raphael II came 7th in Montelibretti.

    “Emily Llewellyn and Junior II return to Houghton for their 2nd successive Nations Cup with good recent form, having taken 13th place in the CIC3* at Belton.”
