September 17, 00:00





Following tremendous success at Hickstead’s September show, Team Breen’s backyard once again played host to the best that the showjumping world has to offer – this time in the form of young horses qualified for the NexGen Series final, crowning the next generation of equine stars. 

Having qualified by completing double clears in in the appropriate British Showjumping age classes, 6 and 7-year-old horses were asked to compete under table A10 guidelines, while 4 and 5-year-olds were judged and given points based on technique, balance, fluency and potential. 

It came as no surprise to find Breen’s string of stylish youngsters front and centre in the 5-year-olds, Georgia and Z7 Dubai Castlefield in 2nd spot with a final score of 103.6. Katie and BE Kamelia finished in 4th with a score of 100.4 and Jack and BE Constanta 6th with a score of 97.7. Outside the top ten and finishing on their first-round scores, Sunni and Al Capone with 47.4 and Shane with BE Golden on 46.3. 

The Breen effect was also in full force in the other age classes with Jack 5th in the 6-year-olds aboard Elmira Mail and Shane both 3rd and 4th in the 7-year-olds with Ivan and Z7 Regal Don, respectively. 

Making the most of the competition atmosphere, in the training classes, BE Cinderella and Katie were clear in the 1m, Shane and Vistogrand were clear in the 1.20 while Jack and Hollywood and Shane and Cuick Star Kervec were clear in the 1.30/1.35.
