Ciaran O'Brien

HEAD LAD

Ciaran joined the team here at Barbury Castle in July 2013. From Kilkenny, Ireland, Ciaran rode as an Amateur for one and half years, riding a few point to point and track winners before turning professional. He was Champion Conditional in Ireland and had rides at Cheltenham and in Australia through his career. He rode for six seasons for the likes of Arthur Moore, John Kiely as well as freelance. He went on to become a very successful point to point trainer and mainly concentrated on buying foals, yearlings and three year olds, selling them on through the point to point circuit and also trained under rules for a period of time, having some success.

His wealth of knowledge and experience is a huge asset and has become a invaluable member of the team.
