Boy racing a horse at Ballinasloe Horse Fair

Another one from this years Ballinasloe Horse Fair.

It’s always a great place to visit to see the sights and the smells of the underbelly of the  horse industry. We as a country pride ourselves so  much on our “Equestrian” heritage and our fabulous horsey industry. We think of the National stud, the Dublin Horseshow at the RDS or any of the big well known stud farms dotted around the country.

All that is luvvly jubbly and it looks great in the Fáilte Ireland brochures, but the real horse industry is showcased every year in Ballinasloe. Here you’ll meet real people with real horses. Travellers, farmers, dealers and traders, all out to do a bit of business. No airs and graces here but plenty of raw gutsy people who are willing to show what their horse can do.

Few more from the set on
