Shane Rose is a dual Olympian who has won both silver and bronze in Team Eventing.
Hailing from Duffys Forest in the Northern Beaches region of New South Wales, Shane began riding at age five and took part in many disciplines before settling on eventing. In 1994, a 21 year old Shane represented Australia in the Young Rider Trans-Tasman competition.
Shane was selected to the Australian team for the Atlanta 1996 Olympic Games but his horse went lame upon arrival in the USA and he was unable to compete. In 1998 Shane competed at the World Equestrian Games in Rome.
Shane competed at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and was part of the team that won a silver medal in Team Eventing.
Selected again for the London 2012 Olympics, Shane was forced to withdraw just days prior to the Games when his horse suffered a minor injury. He went on to compete at the 2014 World Equestrian Games where the Australian Team placed fifth.
Returning to the Olympic arena for the Rio 2016 Games, Shane and the Australian eventing team (which included fellow NSWIS athlete Stuart Tinney) claimed the bronze medal.
Shane and his wife Niki own and operate a horse property in Werombi NSW, where they break in and pre train racehorses.
