LGCT Cannes and a visit to South of England

Posted on June 12, 2022

It’s been a fantastic two weeks on the road for the Breen Team. Ellen with Z7 Ipswich and Haya headed to the south of France for the LGCT show in Cannes.

In the idyllic setting, Haya flew to 2nd in the 5* Prix de Nice Martin in good company. Z7 Ipswich was on the team for the GCL Rome Gladiators and delivered a crucial clear round for the team who now lie in 8th place overall – roll on LGCT Stockholm!

Back on British soil, Breen were out in full force at our favourite county show, South of England. The older horses did not disappoint, with Z7 Regal Don flying to 2nd place in the Area Trial on the Friday and then picked up 4th in the Grand Prix on the Saturday. On Sunday, Vistogrand pulled out all the stops in the 1.55 International Stairway class to finish on top and bring home the win! With these top 5 placings every day in the big classes, it solidified our love for this county show even further!

In the outer rings, the rest of the team were putting in solid rounds and jumping numerous clears. On the back of some fantastic results at Felbridge – where Katie and Evita took the win in the Grand Prix – it’s always great to get the horses out competing on grass before Hickstead. Z7 Dubai Castlefield looked like he was in a class of his own schooling around the 1.30 with John, whilst Katie and Evita were consistently clear in the 1.30 & 1.35 classes. Philip expertly piloted BE Blue, Rivell PS and BE Top-Sekret in the Foxhunters classes, giving all these young horses a positive education.

A huge thanks to our entire team at home and at the shows who make it all possible, as well to our owners and sponsors for their continued support!
