British team announced for next Nations Cup

  • The eventing squad that will represent Britain in the second leg of the FEI Nations Cup Series in Ballindenisk, Ireland (10-14 April) has been selected.

    The 4 team members have been named as:

    • Rosalind Canter (Zenshera, owned by Rosalind)
    • Nicky Roncoroni (Stonedge, owned by Janey Barclay Roncoroni)
    •  Izzy Taylor (Allercombe Ellie, owned by Frances Carter and Susan Holyroyd)
    • Lucy Wiegersma (Mr Chunky, owned by Lucy with Huw Lloyd, Mr Christopher and Sarita Perkins)

    Team manager Philip Surl said: “We have an exciting mix of new and established riders on the team for Ballindenisk, who are on a selection of very promising looking horses.

    “It will be great to see Ros Canter in action at her first Nations Cup competition.”

    Last year Britain won the series despite fielding a relatively inexperienced squad.

    After the 1st leg of the competition in Fontainebleau (20-23 March 2014), Britain are currently in 3rd place with 8 points. The Netherlands are on 9 and France lead with 11.

    The British CICO squad are supported by the UK Sport lottery funded World Class Programme.
