Meet the Team

Everybody in the Breen Equestrian
team plays a vital role.

It takes a great team to keep an operation like ours running smoothly. Chloe runs the office, Debbie is Chloe's PA and does the all important book-keeping. Natty manages the yards and keeps the website and videos up to date. Shane, Georgia and Jack completes up to 5* level and together with Katie, Emmie, Mossy and Cian  produce the young horses and keep all horses worked at home and compete at both international and national shows. Ryan, Karolina and Ellen look after the competition horses at home and at shows, and Greg manages the stud, including the young stock, the brood mares and the foals. Michael's experience whether that is riding the horse or on floor helping others is invaluable at home and at shows.
