Britannia 4* League


Emily Philp Cross country Blenheim 2018The Britannia League was developed by longstanding BE supporter and Event Horse Owner Nigella Hall, with British Eventing, to give British riders who haven't started competition at FEI European Championships, World Equestrians Games or Olympic Games, a substantial reward to target each season.

The League uses the BE points system, with points being accrued at four star level events in the UK as well as at FEI Nations Cup fixtures. (Four star level was previously known as CIC3* and CCI3*. Under the new FEI classification codes, the Britannia League now takes results from CCI4*-L and CCI4*-S classes).

League Prizes
The 2018 winning owner and rider each received a BE membership for 2019 and a 2019 season ticket for the winning horse. The Owner of the leading horse will also be presented with a beautiful bronze trophy, thanks to Nigella Hall.

The 2018 league was won by Emily Philp and Nigel Philp's Camembert. Read the 2018 round up here.
