001 - Golden Hawk
Birth year: 2005
The past couple of months has seen Shane and the Breen Team go from strength to strength. August was jam-packed full of shows in the UK, Ireland and Europe, kicking off at Bolesworth where the young horses added miles onto their clock and Z7 Regal Don took 4th in the 2* GP Qualifier.
Heading over to Ireland, it was the super mare Haya who never was out of the top 10 in the 5* classes at Dublin, taking 5th in the 5* Minvera Stakes, 4th in the 5* Speed Derby and 8th in the 5* Speed Championship. We have always believed this mare was going to be special and she's proven that every time she steps in the ring!
At LGCT, Valkenswaard - Vistogrand jumped phenomenal to help the Rome Gladiators come 3rd, but the highlight of the month was our first ever hybrid auction taking place which was a huge success. This has been an incredible addition to Breen Equestrian and we are excited to be hosting more in the future.
Rolling into September, where Ellen and Shane followed the LGCT around the world. In Rome, Italy, Z7 Ipswich proved to be quick and careful to win the opening 5* class, and fllowed up this perfomance in New York by jumping clear for the Rome Gladiators. In the big apple, it was Haya's time to take the victory - speeding to top spot in the 5* 1.45 Speed Class.
Earlier this month, Shane took a team up to Birmingham for the Horse of the Year Show and they did not disappoint. Vistogrand jumped to 3rd in the 3* Accumulator as well as joint 2nd in the 6-bar to showcase his scope but it was Cuick Star Kervec who was star of the show, winning the iconic Leading Showjumper of the Year 3* Grand Prix - a fantastic way to start indoor season!
A huge thanks to our whole team, owners & sponsors who make this all possible!
