Shannan Connell - Mullumbimby NSW

I bought 'Aristede' as a breaker and we came through the levels to Grand Prix. He won numerous championships including national and CDI Grand Prix championships and has been awarded QLD FEI Horse of the Year in 2016, 2017 & 2018. 
'Somerset Flemington' is still at the beginning of his journey, but we work each day towards him becoming a future Grand Prix horse. During the day I work as a child psychologist, specialising in supporting families with Autism.

My Favourite Black Horse Clothing Item... Would be the Bridget Meryl Fabric Breeches.


  • The first time I ever rode a horse was when…
    I was 11 years old, living on a property in Gunnedah.
  • Other occupation or study outside of riding?
    Yes I am a psychologist.
  • If I never became a horse rider, I would probably… Have a very expensive wardrobe!
  • The biggest achievement of my career so far is…
    Making reserve on the Australian Dressage Team for WEG.
  • A fun fact about me is that… 
    I'm addicted to baking sourdough bread.
