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, with Sarah helping with sponsorship and keeping the website, FaceBook and Twitter up to date, and Debbie is Chloe's PA and does the all important book-keeping. Georgia, Scott, Sunniva, Chris, Emmanuel and Izzy produce the young horses, keep the all horses worked at home and compete at both international and national shows. Nattie and Rosie look after the competition horses at home and at shows, while Joana oversees the smooth running of the yard, and Greg oversees the young stock, the brood mares and the foals. While Michael Quirke's experience is invaluable to everybody both at home and at shows.
