SHANE Breen and the Irish-bred Compelling Z won the inaugural €20,000 Horse Sport Ireland Irish Showjumping Masters at Emerald EC, which was broadcast live on RTÉ2 on Friday night.

The 10-year-old Chellano Z-sired stallion, who was bred in Co Waterford by Carmel and Dermot Ryan, was the best of three double clears in the eight-horse jump-off. Breen, who is based at Hickstead in the UK was delighted to scoop the top prize and drive away in the Overlander two-horse truck, worth €50,000.
