This commissioned professional Equine portrait of Top Showjumping Horse and prolific winner, “Mrs Quinn” who partnered Ireland’s top International show jumping rider, Greg Broderick of Ballypatrick Stables to many of his National wins.
Mrs Quinn was a fantastic mare to photograph. She adores Gregs sister Cheryl and was a supermodel for us during the photoshoot. I used my signature studio lighting set up as it really highlights her gorgeous compact confirmation.

“Mrs Quinn is a typical Irish horse with a huge heart and a real fighter in the ring. She has a quirky personality and she’s not a lover of the farrier or the clipping machine, but we get around her. She was bought in Cavan sales as a five-year- old and campaigned in Canada under Alan Kruger before returning to Ireland as an 11 year-old. It took a while to get to know each other but we have formed a very good partnership.
She is a full sister to International showjumping mare Shannondale, so its exiting to see what her foals will be like.
“Since competing at Grand Prix level in Ireland she has clocked up numerous wins”
