At a farm in Inishmore, the biggest of the Aran Islands, a curious horse greets his guest across a stony fence. The calcium-riched emerald pastures of the republic has made its horse famous in Europe. Today, horses are still an important part of Irish life in the rural as well as in the urban areas. The Laytown Strand Races and the Sunday horse market in Dublin serve the evidence. Children galloping horses in Dublin's rundown Ballymun and Finglas areas has even been featured in CBS's 60 Minutes TV journal. The reality, however, is less romantic. Most horses are subject to abuse from the exuberant and careless teenage riders. As a result, the Dublin city council has recent banned such practice in these area.
