Irish Hunter - An Exceptional Horse Across Any Country

Irish Hunter - An Exceptional Horse Across Any Country
Noel Mullins’’ latest book titled ‘The Irish Hunter’ is a pictorial portfolio of some 500 images taken in his travels in Ireland and abroad over the last 20 years. It illustrates the exceptional ability of this marvellous horse tackling a wide variety of natural cross country fences such as stone walls, ditches, streams and double banks, to man-made fences such as gates, wire, pallets, and even a bed post and a church pew that one can occasionally come across in the Irish countryside!

In the introduction the book looks at how horses originated in Ireland from wild horses 28,000 years ago to domesticated horses circa 2,400 BC, and some of the various breeds of horses that graced the Irish countryside in the meantime. Horses such as the Irish Hobby, the Garraun, the Cushendall, the Rathlin, and latterly the Irish Draught Horse, the Connemara Pony and the Thoroughbred whose offspring give rise to what we know today as the Irish Hunter, also known as the Irish Draught Cross and the Irish Sport Horse.

As a testament to the temperament and the popularity of the Irish Hunter the book shows a number of well-known individuals over 80 years of age who have hunted regularly as octogenarians. But the images don’t only show Irish Hunters in the hunting field, as we also see action images of ladies crossing country Side Saddle, including riders participating at the Athlacca cross country charity event, the Antler Challenge, Ballymacad Hunting Extravaganza, Hunter Trials, Eventing, Hunt Chasing, National Hunt Racing and even a trio of pure Irish Draught horses that specialize in dressage, one of whom has reached Prix St. Georges level, one level away from Grand Prix.
