Shane Breen has announced that his former top horse World Cruise (Cruising x Clover Hill) has passed away, at the age of 25. With World Cruise, the Irish rider got to compete at his first World Equestrian Games – in Aachen in 2006. 

On his Instagram page, Breen pays tribute to the gelding and writes: “My dear old friend World Cruise passed away last night age 25. A life changing horse for me. My proudest day was jumping double clear in my first RDS Dublin Aga Khan Nations Cup. We had so many memorable times competing and being placed in 5* Grand Prix’s around the globe, including the World Equestrian Games in 2006 & European Championships. He had wonderful owners in the Duffy family; Sandra, Vinnie, Samantha, Audrey, Martin, Alex, and Michael. There is not a week that goes by, when schooling my current horses, that I don’t think of Cruise, he will remain firmly in my thoughts. RIP World Cruise. What a horse, goodbye my friend."
