Originally from Tipperary, Ireland, Shane grew up on the family sales/competition yard and developed his skills for breaking and producing young horses. It was in Ireland where Shane gained a lot of experience competing on the national circuit including Millstreet and the prestigious Dublin Show.
Shane then made the move to Oakingham Stud in 2017 to gain more experience producing and competing young horses on the International circuit. Here he began competing across the UK and Europe, managing to secure placings and wins including 1* GP and 6 yr old finals at MET, Oliva Nova. In March 2020, Shane made the transition to the team at Manton Grange. His sense of humour, horsemanship and good nature ensured he fitted straight in.
