RACING WOMEN INAUGURAL AMBASSADOR ZARA PHILLIPS
Zara Phillips was born on 15 May 1981 in London and is the only daughter of Princess Anne, the Princess Royal and her first husband, Captain Mark Phillips.
Following a successful career in young riders, which included victory in the Under 25 Championship at Bramham and an individual silver medal in the European Young Riders Championship in 2002, Zara really established herself at senior level in 2003 by finishing second at Burghley three day event with Toytown.
A polished display in the dressage arena and a fast and clear cross country round gave her the lead going in to the show jumping and although one fence down dropped her to second behind the Rolex Grand Slam champion Pippa Funnell, it was still a remarkable display from the then 22 year old in her first attempt at four-star level.
Following that performance, Zara was long listed for Athens in 2004 but her hopes of emulating her parents by competing with the British event team at an Olympic Games were dashed by an injury to Toytown that ruled him out for the rest of the year.
In June 2005, Zara put that disappointment behind her with a great performance at the newly upgraded four star event in Luhmuhlen. She finished on her dressage score to take second place with Toytown and earn selection, originally as an individual, for the European Championships at Blenheim in September. Following the withdrawal of Primmore’s Pride, Zara replaced Pippa Funnell on the British team for Blenheim.
Showing composure beyond her years, Zara rode into history by taking two gold medals on her senior debut (individual and team), exceeding the achievement of her mother, who won the individual title at the European Championships in 1971.
In 2006, Zara achieved her greatest result to date by winning Individual Gold and Team Silver at the World Equestrian Games, Aachen 2006 where she rode Toytown.
Following her gold medal at the World Equestrian Games Zara was awarded the 2006 BBC Sports Personality of the year.
Zara was selected for the 2008 Beijing Olympics with Toytown. However it was not to be, for the second time Zara was denied the chance to compete at the Games through an injury to Toytown. At the end of the year this was followed by her own injury when she fell from her horse whilst competing and broke her collarbone.
Following her injury and the disappointment of losing her place in 2008 Olympic team, Zara trained hard with her stable of horses, firmly setting her sights on reaching the 2012 Olympic Games.
In 2012, Zara had a fantastic start to the season winning at Tweseldown and securing six top five finishes at Gatcombe, Burnham and Bramham. In June she was announced as a member of the British Equestrian Team for the London 2012 Olympics Games, joining riders William Fox-Pitt, Mary King, Tina Cook and Nicola Wilson. Despite being the youngest rider on the team, Zara showed great strength under enormous pressure with a solid dressage display and a flawless performance in the cross country round. With strong showings from Zara and her fellow riders in the final show jumping round, the team rose to the occasionwinning a well-earned silver medal.
Zara is now looking forward to 2013 and what the hectic competition schedule holds for her and her stable of horses.
