Now, he is also joining the great men themselves, his father and uncle, John and Michael, at the top of British show jumping!

  • Show jumper Shane Breen introduces a 5 year old potential eventer to cross country obstacles at home at the famous Hickstead show ground. The young horse is green but bold and shows a lovely attitude. Shane tells us his aim is for horse to be brave, balanced and straight and to take him to the fence. Starting in the school over a skinny, Shane then jumps in and out of the arena before moving on to a water splash which he links to a hedge. Having allowed the horse to jump freely across country, the next step in his education will be to focus on more technical questions in the school for a while, including bounces, related distances and some trickier skinnies.

  • This 8 year old stallion has been with Shane less than a year. Shane says he is very difficult in the mouth and rides like a 6 year old. Nonetheless, he is talented and aimed at Grand Prix soon. Starting with poles, then a grid and moving to a course, Shane provides a fascinating insight into how to manage such an opinionated horse. The main problem is he locks his jaw and runs to the fence. Shane offers ideas to improve rideability with this common problem, including exercises and how to influence with his position. Without a gadget in sight, Shane finishes by working on related distances which highlight the problem and also show the improvement!
