I think I'm going through charming accent withdrawal. Luckily for me (and you!) we captured some on video!

First up, we have Fionnan Nestor of Failte Ireland giving tips on booking an equestrian trip to Ireland. If you're thinking of visiting (do it!), this is chock-full of useful info on things to consider when booking a trip, resources available online, etc. And there's some great b-roll of the colo(u)red cob class at the Dublin Horse Show.

Fionnan joined us for dinner after the show and I assure you, he really is that enthusiastic!


Next up, Roly Owers of World Horse Welfare discusses their international projects.

You might know World Horse Welfare by their former title, the International League for Protection of Horses. Their outreach programs in countries like Lesotho and Mexico bring aid to working animals through education, including farrier training and harness/saddle making, which also benefits local people by teaching them new skills. See their Web site and read an in-depth report on their efforts in Mexico.

We have several more racing-related vids in the queue for editing with our sister publication, The Blood-Horse. I'll let you know when those are live as well.
