- Michael Duffy
- Competing for: Ireland
In 2012, aged just 17, Michael Duffy became the youngest ever Senior Irish National Champion. Michael moved to England in 2013 to train with Shane Breen in Hickstead. In September of that year he opened his account at that famous showground, with a win in the All England Grand Prix.
After gaining valuable experience producing young horses, Michael decided to set up on his own, based at Inglis Stables in Cuckfield, West Sussex. He initially started the 2014 season with 2 horses, but after winning the Stoner Jewellers Vase at Hickstead and the Talbot Hotels Speed Derby in Dublin, where he was awarded the Paul Darragh memorial trophy, 8 new horses were added to his stables, within just a month.
Since, Michael has risen to the top and now regularly competes at 5* level.
