Fenwick & Gucci

I first met Ryan Shannon and Shannon Equestrian when I was looking for a youngster, Ryan was recommended to me via Charlotte Dujardin. My youngster was found and imported by Ryan. Once I had purchased Joey I asked Ryan to have him for 6 weeks to back him as a 3 year old. From the first moment I saw Ryan work with a Ferrell, big young horse I knew I had put my horse in the right hands. Ryan and Callum are the most calm, considerate and empathetic horsemen I know. Joey trusted them both and they did a beautiful job of teaching him the ropes. Within 6 weeks I had a 17hh 3 year old who could walk, trot and canter on both reins confidently and calmly.
After 6 months in the field I sent Joey back to Shannon Equestrian to continue with his education as a young 4 year old. He stayed with Ryan for another 8/9 weeks. Every time I visited my horse he was happy, healthy and improving.
At the end of his time at Shannon equestrian I took home a safe, well trained youngster whom I was confident to ride myself. Ryan produces horses ready for life, not just a dressage arena. I’m able to ride him on the road, round open fields, in the school and at competitions. The fundamental ground work he received was second to none. He was never scared and everything was black and white, he had had an all round education.
A year on from him having been with Ryan, Joey is now a 5 year old. He has competed at two premier leagues and has qualified for the Novice Gold at the Summer Regionals with scores of 70+%. I am so greatful to Ryan and Callum for how they produced my horse and I’m confident that without the grounding they gave him he wouldn’t be the superstar he is becoming. It now my job to do Shannon Equestrian proud by building on the concrete foundations they gave me!
Thank you!
Tor and Joey
