E2 Show Jumpers produces top young horses for the future of the show jumping sport.
Katherine Gallagher and Michael Meller
Partnership & Vision
Seven years ago, Michael Meller and Katherine Gallagher met through a mutual friend. Since then, the two have formed a close relationship, which has allowed great success in their business ventures. The duo owns a string of young horses in Europe in conjunction with Ireland's Dan Walsh. Known as E2 Show Jumpers, the trio has worked together with rider Stacey Babes to produce top stallions and competitors on the European circuit. Offspring of their program include Camillo VDL, Caius and Iceman de Muze.
A former rider himself, Meller is now known in the equestrian industry as a trainer who knows a good horse. Having helped produce a number of top young jumpers, Meller has a keen eye for seeing a horse's potential and helping it rise to the occasion.
Gallagher started riding when she was young, and since then, has been dedicated to the sport and the welfare of the horses. She has enjoyed watching the horses grow to their full potential through Meller's program. For many years Gallagher has worked hard to ensure the best care for each horse and that they move on to well matched owners.
Gallagher and Meller strive to positively impact the future of show jumping by breeding, training and showing some of the top young horses in the world. By putting the horses first, Gallagher and Meller take a careful approach to training, paying attention to the specific needs of each horse as it advances from the Young Jumpers to the CSI5* level.
