AN emotional Trevor Breen dismounted his loyal partner Adventure de Kannan for the very last time before the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby last Sunday as he retired from international show jumping in the arena where he made his name.

A winner of almost every major class in the famous ring, including the British Speed Derby, the Eventing Grand Prix, the All England Grand Prix, the Queen Elizabeth II Cup, Adventure de Kannan finally won the Hickstead Derby in 2014, just a year after having his right eye removed.
