With a total of 158 BE Points collected at three star events, Emily Philp and Nigel Philp’s Camembert this year take the title in the Britannia 3* League.
The West Midlands based rider has enjoyed a very successful and consistent year on the 13 year old Irish-gelding, having not placed lower than 12th in any of their six three star starts this season. Highlights include taking third place in both the Belton Park International CIC3* and Land Rover Blair Castle CIC3* in the Event Rider Masters Finale, along with a seventh place finish at the SsangYong Blenheim Palace CCI3*.
Commenting on her win, Emily said; “It is fantastic to have won the Britannia 3* League this season; Camembert has been amazingly consistent and it is great that this has been recognised. I want to say a huge thank you to his owners, my sponsors and my whole team at home who make it possible.”
As part of her prize both Emily, and Camembert’s owner, Nigel Philp, will receive a BE Membership for 2019, Camembert will take a Horse Season ticket and Nigel will also be presented with a beautiful bronze trophy, thanks to Nigella Hall. Emily will also be our 2019 BE Life magazine rider diarist, where we can follow her journey next season.
Four points adrift from the league leaders, Emily King and Mrs Jane Del Missier’s 10 year old gelding Dargun take second in the Britannia 3* League on 154 points; thanks to their win at Bramham International in the CCI3* Under 25 and third place in the British Open at the Magic Millions Festival of British Eventing.
After winning the SsangYong Blenheim Palace CCI3* and taking fourth at the Land Rover Blair Castle CIC3*, Bella Innes Ker and the Duchess Duchess Of Roxburghe’s Carolyn finish in third place in the 2018 league on a total of 141 BE Points.
Developed by longstanding BE supporter and owner Nigella Hall, the league is open to British riders who have not started for GB at a senior European or World Championships, or an Olympic Games. It takes BE points awarded at British CIC and CCI3* classes and any Nations Cup appearances, and provides up-and-coming British riders with an exciting target each year.
