Rosalind Canter

Great Britain
  • 46 - Allstar B


British rider Rosalind Canter (31) who is based near Louth in Lincolnshire started at her first Badminton last year but withdrew Allstar B after dressage. The combination, a member of the World Class UK Lottery funded programme, was then 25th at Burghley.

Ros grew up on the family farm at Hallington in Lincolnshire, where she is now based. She spent her childhood riding around the farm with her parents and two sisters and was an active member of the South Wold Hunt North PC, producing her ponies from an early age. Silver Curtis, her first horse set her down the road of affiliated eventing. They were short listed for the junior team and together completed their first advanced class.

Ros then studied Sport Science at Sheffield Hallam University, playing first team hockey as well as juggling horses and eventing. After graduating she went travelling for four months and decided on her return to pursue a career in eventing. In 2008 she took a summer job with Judy Bradwell that turned into four years. During this time she qualified horses for the Burghley Young Event Horse Final and the Young Horse Eventing Championships (winning both in 2011 with Cekatinka) and also represented Great Britain in the World University Equestrian Championships in Algeria, winning a silver medal in the show jumping. In 2010 she was reserve champion in the six-year-old class of the World Championships in Le Lions and won her first three-day event, the CCI1* at Osberton.  At the end of 2011 Ros decided to run her own yard and in 2013 completed her first three-star and in 2014 was selected for her first British Nations Cup team.

Ros enjoys producing young horses and in 2016 her rides were second and third in the Burghley four & five-year-old Young Event Horse finals.

Ros trains with Ian Woodhead and Caroline Moore. She enjoys sport and plays squash and hockey.

Allstar B, owned by Caroline Moore and rider, is a Dutch-bred 12-year-old gelding. He is by the Selle Francais international showjumper Ephebe For Ever (a son of Galoubet A) out of Narenca B by the showjumper Ekstein. His half-sister Vienna also competes in eventing and was 9th at Strzegom last year – where Allstar B was 3rd – for Dutch rider Jeanette Chardon. Another half-sister competes in grand prix jumping in the USA.

Allstar B was formerly ridden by his owner and Emily Parker. Ros took the ride in 2013.
