About Bella Innes Ker
Bella is 24 years old and originally started her riding career as a keen member of the Duke of Buccleuch Hunt and Pony Club in the Scottish Borders. This was combined with success in the show ring, largely competing in Working Hunter Pony classes. Bella has grown up with strong equestrian links with her father running Floors Stud, a commercial thoroughbred breeding operation, breeding the hugely successful racehorse, Attraction who won five Gr 1 races. And her mother is the Organiser of Floors Castle International Horse Trials, an event that has been running in the Borders for 26 years.
Bella started competing from a young age; throughout School and University she managed to juggle working and competing to a very high level, which included becoming Junior National Champion in 2012, representing her Country on three occasions at Junior and Young Rider European Championships and was a member of two Gold medal winning teams. After completing University and graduating with a first class honours degree in Sports Management Bella spent 2018 eventing full time, and had an unforgettable season with the undoubted highlight leading from start to finish at Blenheim International Horse Trials in the CCI4*-L class, and becoming the youngest winner in history.
Bella is now based at the yard of William Fox-Pitt to help maximise her potential. It is the ideal place to produce youngstock and train top level event horses with outstanding facilities and the invaluable support network from William and the rest of his team.
Most recently she has been selected for the World Class Podium Potential Pathway squad for the period 2019-2021, where she is receiving invaluable support and guidance from the very best in the industry.
Bella is now looking for sponsors and owners to join her journey with her new venture, Roxburghe Eventing. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in contact.
