Shane Breen

Clear rounds from Shane have
contributed to many Irish Nations Cup victories, including those at Dublin
in 2006 & 2011 and Hickstead in 2012.

Shane cites his double clear on World Cruise in the Aga Khan Trophy at Dublin in 2006 as one of his most memorable experiences.

Born in Limerick, Shane got his first pony at the age of five and hunted throughout his childhood. He believes this hunting background has stood him in good stead, especially helping to win many derby style competitions including the Hickstead Speed Derby and the Hickstead Eventing Grand Prix. Shane represented Ireland at Pony, level becoming European Silver Medallist and winning the opportunity to spend some time in Nelson Pessoa’s yard in Europe, and then progressed through Junior and Young rider teams to the Irish National Team.

Shane has over twenty years’ experience of buying and selling horses. He has a brilliant eye for the right horse – be it a show jumper with Olympic potential, an amateur show jumper or eventer, or a hunter.

 

With extensive contacts in many disciplines, and all over Europe and Ireland you can be sure that even if Shane doesn’t have the horse you need in his yard, he knows where it is. Shane’s rides for 2015 include Golden Hawk and Farao Van't Vennerhof; Cosima 204 who has several international wins to her credit, the very promising eight year old Tango d'Ecry and the seven year olds Ipswich van de Wolfsakker, Silbermond and Skyfall.

 

In 2007 Shane married Chloe, daughter of Hickstead founder Douglas Bunn, and they are based at Hickstead in Sussex with their four children, Lorna, Darcy, Douggie and Wolftone.
