Garda Mounted Unit

Dressed to kill

So we got to visit the Garda mounted Unit stables in Áras an Uachtarain with the camera club. What a fantastic place set in the grounds of Mickey D’s house in the park. It’s a small yard with about a dozen HUGE horses. I’m sure you’ve seen them at various events over the years – they are feicin massive!

Binding
Binding the tail…….

Binding up the horses tail is one of the preparatory tasks undertaken before transporting the horses anywhere. It protects the bone in their tail from any banging while they are in the horse box.

Double take…

Kinda made a bit of a horses arse of this shot but there you go!

You can’t visit a stable without posting one of those tacky shots, so here it is…..
