What a time it’s been for Breen Sport Horses at the Science Supplements All England September Tour, Hickstead.
Riding high off week one’s victory in the Grand Prix with homebred Highland President, we’d be remiss not to start our show round up with the unbelievable performance from Escapade H which culminated in a second place in the Science Supplements All England Grand Prix. Talk about a team effort; building up to the final day, fondly named ‘Eddie’, saw success in the back arenas with Caroline, as she prepared him for his big performance with an impressive double clear in the 1.30m to set him up for the week. After a couple of warm up rounds in the 1.40m Open with Trevor, he saved the best until last and rode a spectacular double clear in the Grand Prix, to take second place, adding to Trevor’s remarkable record of placings in this iconic Main Arena.
Over the week Trevor tallied up an impressive 3 top ten placings in the main arena, including 5th & 8th with Old Lodge’s Dancing Wolf OL and Germaine W respectively in the 1.40 Open.
New lad on the yard, Toyger, made his second show appearance with the team this week, following on from his debut in week one of the tour, and did not disappoint. Owned by Caroline, this guy produced a brilliant clear in the 1.30 Open Champs Qualifier to take 2nd place with Trevor. This pairing went on to jump their first 1.40 together in his main ring debut and we couldn’t be prouder with of how he stepped up to the challenge. Riding high, he took to the main ring for a second time on the final day of the show to claim a further 2nd place in the 1.30 Open Championship.
Jumped Up Z, picked up where he left off after week one, and progressed fantastically to give Trevor a lovely double clear in the Senior Newcomers on Thursday. The rest of the week saw a couple of 4 fault rounds as he grows and learns, but we’re very excited for what this gorgeous stallion has to offer.
Lest we forget yard favourite, Kilmastulla Douglas, who rode around the 1.20 Opens in style all week, showing us why he is Caroline’s go-to guy. Caroline also took to the 1.20 with ride Monks Diarados Boy, who continues to show his improvement in the arena since he joined the team in July.
A special mention must go to Izzie Mcclelland, who jumped her first ever 1.40 with Endless Love D’Hof Ten Bos, only to jump again the next day and take 10th place!
It’s been a truly amazing couple of weeks at this tour for the team. Taking a win in the Grand Prix week one, and 2nd place week two, is no mean feat and we couldn’t be prouder of the whole team, who work tirelessly to get the horses looking their best and performing at the top of their game.
