For the Brittish, Talan placed at the Hickstead Derby and in the Longines King George V Gold Cup.

Talan was ridden extensively by HH Prince Faisal Al-Shalan and Abdullah Al-Sharbatly in many Longines and other international showjumping competitions through 2017. He has gained much experience, placings, and winnings and 2014 he jumped at the World Equestrian Games and also took home a silver medal at the Asian Games that year. In 2015, Al-Sharbatly took over riding Talan and together then won the CSI3* World Cup in Mostaganem and placed second in the CSI5* Grand Prix in Riyadh.
