Ellie Fredericks


20 year old Ellie Fredericks enjoyed a fantastic 2023 season, competing Lucinda Fredericks’ stallion Britannia’s Mail, 8 year old mare Pure Trendsetter (part-owned by Liz Hills and Lucinda), and our homebred youngsters – 6 year old Sports Pony stallion Britannia’s Bijou, and 5 year olds Upsi Britannia and Upper Class Brit. 

Ellie was honoured to be a member of the u21 British Eventing Youth Development Squad for a second year and enjoyed taking part in the Howden Way training programme, having been invited to participate with Pure Trendsetter.  

Highlights of Ellie’s 2023 season include being selected for, and competing at, the Young Rider European Championships in Montelibretti, Italy with Pure Trendsetter, completing her first 4* event at Bicton International with Britannia’s Mail, placing 5th with Pure Trendsetter in their first Advanced at Aston in the 8/9 year old class, and ending Upsi Britannia’s season having had only one pole down and placing in the top 10 at 8 of his 10 events throughout 2023. 

Ellie has found herself riding amongst some of the top riders in tough competitions and it is testament to her hard work and dedication to the horses that she has progressed up the levels with each horse and enjoyed such superb results. 

Aims for Ellie’s 2024 season include stepping up to 4* on Pure Trendsetter, introducing new horse Legende P to the British Eventing scene and progressing to 3* L level with him, and continuing to produce 6 year olds Upsi Britannia and Upper Class Brit to be consistent at Novice / 2* level.

A couple of the homebreds will be sold this year so Ellie is actively looking for new rides to run alongside Pure Trendsetter and Legende P and bring on up the levels.
