    Default Documentary on Connemaras

    As a child, I had a VHS tape about the Connemara breed. IIRC, it was produced by National Geographic. I'm trying to locate a copy, but an Amazon search came up with nothing.

    Does anyone remember this documentary and/or have any ideas as to where else I could look?

    Are you sure it was just about Connemara's? Nat Geo did a film called "Ballad of the Irish Horse" that had a lot of Connemaras but also various Irish horse scenes and settings, such as fox hunting and so on.

    Thumbs up

    Exactly. I bought it when I bought my ISH gelding. Wonderful, wonderful portrait of the equestrian lifestyle in Ireland.

    Check out your library for a copy. Thye can probably get it through interlibrary loan if they don't have a copy. I remember the program, they music was great, too.

    Amazon only has new/used copies on VHS tape, but National Geographic sells it on DVD: http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/n...roductId=95009
