Headley Britannia was a 15.3hh mare ridden by Lucinda Fredericks to many eventing victories. Born in 1993 her sire was Jumbo, an Irish Sport Horse and her dam the Thoroughbred Alan's Bambi. Brit, as she was known, was liver chestnut and quite small considering her success.
She was bred at the Headley stud by the Hounsell's and started competing in autumn 1998 with Emma Robson. Sent to Lucinda Frederiks in 2002 to be sold, no one was interested in buying her, so Lucinda decided to compete her. They won their first event (Intermediate) at Aldon! Later that year they won at Blenheim ....
..... in 2007 Brit was gifted to Lucinda.
2004 Won Bicton (Advanced)

2008 Silver at Beijing Olympics and won at Salperton (OI) and Barbury

2011 Won Tweseldown (OI)
She is one of only 2 horse to have won Badminton, Burghley and the Kentucky Rolex events.
