Short preview of the film.



Connemara & it’s ponies

This fascinating, half-hour colour documentary, shot in 1969 has been shown around the world. It features a year in the life of the remarkable Connemara pony, starting with never-before recorded footage of the birth of a foal in the open. It shows the famous Clifden Pony Show and the Maam Cross horse fair. It also reveals a traditional way of life in the west of Ireland that no longer exists. With beautiful shots of Connemara and the ponies in their natural setting, this film is not only a valuable archival document but also a homage to this robust Irish breed and the people of the Connemara region in County Galway, Ireland.
