A member of over 80 Irish Nations' Cup teams, Cian has two World Championships, three European Championships and an Olympic Games under his belt, making him an natural choice as an ambassador of Charles Owen.

Cian has chosen to wear the popular Ayr8 and joins an impressive list of riders that have decided to put their trust in Charles Owen’s protection.

Roy Burek, Managing Director at Charles Owen & Company comments: “Ireland has such a rich equestrian heritage and Cian O’Connor is one of the world’s top show jumpers. Charles Owen, in its centenary year, is proud to partner with Cian to blend its heritage with one of Ireland’s finest horseman.”

Cian commented: “Charles Owen represents the very best in helmet technology. Competing at the very top means that I have to take my equipment very seriously. Charles Owen helmets are comfortable and stylish and more importantly knowing how safe they are, keeps my mind at ease.”

A Great Finish To Uae Tour

Cian picked up five 2nd placings as well as a 5th placing at last weekend's 4star show in Al Ain, UAE. Arabella was 5th in the 1m40 in the opening competition and 2nd in the Mini Grand Prix. Everything, whom Cian sold to the UAE last September was 2nd with Cian in the 1m40 Final.

The star of the show though was the Irish bred Larkhill Cruiser, who was 2nd in all three big classes including the Grand Prix. He was the only horse to be placed in all four legs of the UAE World Cup Qualifing rounds and as a result was named Leading Horse of the tour and Can Leading Rider.
