Cian is a 41-year-old multi-medallist and one of Ireland’s longest-serving Team members. Cian is married to Ruth and they have two children, Ben and Cara. He competes at the very top level of international showjumping across the globe. Having ridden in his first Nations Cup for Ireland at the age of 19, Cian has gone on to achieve a remarkable record in selections for the Irish team, with 127 appearances to date under his country’s flag.
An Olympic individual Bronze medal-winner at London in 2012, Cian has maintained a high level of success, and in 2017 added a European Gold team medal and a European individual Bronze medal to his record.
Cian rides for Cannes Stars in 2022, alongside Sameh El Dahan, Johnny Pals, Jens Baackmann, Isabella Russekoff and Max Wachman. The team will be looking for redemption in the 2022 season after a disappointing 16th place in the 2021 overall season, but some fresh injections of talent are sure to set them on the right path.
