"I try to get them around the woods here or on the gallop track – or just working them on the grass field – just doing something different with them.

Here's how it looked when we visited Ireland's super talented 18 year old! All photos (c) Jenny Abrahamsson.

There is no bling in sight, no gold, no chandeliers at Allen's yard – it's all about the comfort of the horses. It's simple and it's natural.
