Warmbloods in Ireland
This book endeavours to give an account of the background and influence of the European sires which have caused consternation since their arrival in Ireland.
Some see the development as the salvation of a floundering Irish horse industry, others believe that the imports will do untold damage to Irish breeding.
Our traditional characteristics will be lost, it is claimed, the standard of the Irish horse will deteriorate, he will be diminished on the world scene.We have to await developments to see that will actually emerge but in the mean time it has to be accepted that the Continental horse has arrived, that he is here to stay and that for good or ill, we will have to live with the consequences.
