Canter's CCI **** results include finishing fifth at the 2017 Badminton Horse Trials on ALLSTAR B, and ninth at the 2017 Luhmühlen Horse Trials on ZENSHERA. She then won team gold and finished fifth individually at the 2017 European Eventing Championships on Allstar B, before finishing seventh at the 2017 Etoiles de Pau on ZENSHERA. In May 2018, she finished third at the Badminton Horse Trials on ALLSTAR B.
Canter won two golds at the 2018 FEI World Equestrian Games in Tryon, riding Allstar B. She is the fifth British rider to become World Champion in Eventing, after Mary Gordon-Watson (1970), Lucinda Green (1982), Virginia Leng (1986), and Zara Phillips (2006).
Speaking on The Eventing Podcast’s episode “Horses to watch 2023” in early 2023, Irish Olympian Sam Watson opined that Lordships Graffalo would inevitably become the highest-rated British event horse of all time.
In May 2023, LORDSHIPS GRAFFALO and Ros Canter led The Mars Equestrian Badminton Horse Trials from start to finish to win with a record victory margin of 15 penalties. In September 2023 Canter rode IZILOT DHI to victory at Blenheim International Horse Trials, and then the same combination went on to win Pau on their 5* debut in October of the same year.
