A very nice copy tight and clean. A little faded on spine edge, possibly an unread copy, no creases down spine . 134pp packed with information, articles and photographs. Ireland has long been regarded as the land of the horse but it might not be so widely known that County Cork can take its place as an important foundation stone of this equestrian tradition. This book reveals how the county can claim some of the most successful and talented horses and riders of all time as its own. Olympic gold medalists, European champions, Grand National and Cheltenham Gold Cup winners were bred and raised in this corner of Ireland as were those hard working horses which were the life-blood of rural Ireland for so long before mechanisation replaced them with the tractor and motor car.
