Elena Pothmann

Owner & Head Instructor

Elena Pothmann has a wide range of experience across many equestrian fields. Originally from Sweden, she came up through the showjumping circuit and successfully brought up and competed on her top mare, Flex.

Flex's prodigy, Flexible, then went on to compete at International Level with American showjumer, Rich Fellers.

In Ireland she has produced and trained many top ponies, including the Grade A Grand Prix stallion Ashfield Echo I Love You, ridden by Daryl Walker. Elena has acquired her BHS AI certificate and her Swedish RIK I certificate, giving her a vast experience and training.

She established MPM Equestrian, originally Echo Equestrian, in 2001 and has gone from strength to strength over the years.

Her three daughters are all involved in the running of this family orientated business, having competed on ponies and horses over the years.

Sara Pothmann Cullen

Sara Pothmann Cullen has always shown a keen interest and talent in horses and is very orientated in horse behaviour and horsemanship. She is immensely involved in the training of horses and ponies, ranging from unhandled to horses in need of re-schooling.

At this moment in time, Sara is competing up to 1m20 on her two mounts Arkana and My Mr Knightly, with whom she has numerous placings and winnings.

Her string of upcoming horses include Swiss owned HS Joy and Ballycoog Furisto Lady, both of which she is bringing up through the ranks.

When Sara is not competing, she can be found schooling livery and interim horses in the mpm arena and cross country course as well as helping in the day to day running of the yard
