Dingle Peggy: Further Travels In Ireland On Horseback, by Hilary Bradt
Travel writer Hilary Bradt journeys on horseback through south west Ireland with her pony, Peggy.
She travels from the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, down the coast of County Cork, before turning inland through Counties Waterford, Tipperary and Limerick.
The story is both a portrait of Ireland and its people in 1984 and of the growing affection between the author and her pony. Both confront their fears: Peggy was used to pulling a cart and hated going cross country, while Hilary's confidence was shattered by her experience in the mountains of Kerry with Mollie. But all ends well.
