Ros has had an extraordinary year. From the perspective of the big events it kicked off with a third place at Badminton on Allstar B, followed by third at Luhmuhlen with Zenshera.
Zenshera was also runner up at Millstreet, and finished Ros’ eventing season off with fifth at Pau, while Las Vegas gave her a first taste of the indoor Eventing Masters, taking the runner up spot in both Stuttgart and Stockholm. Ros finished the eventing season as World number two in the FEI rankings, with Allstar B and Zenshera taking the top two spots on the British Eventing points winning table.
Ros was named Horse & Hound Professional Rider of the Year, but the biggest accolade of all, of course, was being crowned World Champion – alongside Allstar B, whilst leading Great Britain to the team gold medal. It’s not often that an event rider is invited on to BBC breakfast….
Ros has been blown away by the support that she has received this year, both from owners, her team at home and her sponsors, but also from eventing enthusiasts and fellow competitors. She’s looking forward to parading at Olympia with her team mates, and is already focussing on the 2019 season. Before that, there are still two (maybe soon to be three) 4-year-old to 4* lecture demos booked for January (currently Wellington Riding 25th January and Easton College 27th January).
