Editorial Reviews

Over the centuries, horses have captured hearts and minds of the Irish people. Nurtured by the mild climate and rich grasses, the horses of Ireland have always flourished. From magnificent wild stallions to sturdy work ponies and the elegant racing thoroughbreds-Ireland's horses are an enduring part of the country's history, work, and play. A romantic portrait of man and animal for viewers to treasure.

This is a classic in my family because we all love horses and have Irish heritage, but anyone who loves horses and ponies will enjoy this DVD. Like all National Geographic video classics, the narration and video are top-notch and while some fashions and references to famous people may seem a little dated, it has a genuine and affectionate nature that is timeless. Horse lovers of all ages will enjoy and treasure this program. I'm so glad it finally is available on DVD (we wore out our VHS tape version!).

Whatever their use, riding, breeding, work, contest, or racing, the Irish have a connection with horses that is almost mythical. This program, one of National Geographic's best, examines this relationship.

This is one great video, of the many great video programs produced by National Geographic. Horse lovers everywhere will enjoy this. You will learn that all thoroughbreds are descended from an Irish horse. This one is universally wholesome and enjoyable.

utterly magnififcent. I was totally enchanted with this DVD suitable for any age. the photography was excellent as was the narration. it warmed my heart in this dreary wintertime. most of the areas were familliar to me and I learned a lot of history about one of my favourites animals, the regal and glorious horse. this DVD was above my expectations even of National Geographic's untarnished reputation. what with this and Dennis Clint's Ireland, all the bitter cold and snow emotionally melted away.

Realistic views of how horses are nurtured, breed and raised to perform a variety of tasks in Ireland. I really enjoyed the "natural way" one breeders kept his mares and stallions. Beautiful!

A must see for any horse lover. This is a wonderful insight to horses in Ireland and how they are used in many disciplines. Pity it's not in full hd would have given it a 5.
