About the Author:

Born in 1931, Michael Slavin has been a keen observer of horses since the time they were worked on his family’s farm in Cavan in the thirties and forties. When he moved to Dublin after the War the Horse shows at the RDS became an annual pilgrimage. Even when studying abroad for his Masters in Education he still found ways of finding horse events to attend. Soon after returning home in the late sixties he began a career as equestrian journalist and commentator. He has written for the Irish Field, Irish Farmers Journal, Horse and Hound plus other equine publications in six countries. He acted as RTE Radio’s Show Jumping and Eventing commentator for 20 years. His previous books include Irish Show Jumping Legends 1868-1998; The Ancient Books of Ireland and The Book of Tara. He now runs an antiquarian book shop at the Hill of Tara, where he also makes his home with his wife Katie.

Book Description O Brien Press Ltd, Ireland, 2010. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first official history of the Irish Army Equitation School. From its tentative beginning back in the post War of Independence days of 1926 right to the present, the Irish Army Equitation School has been assigned what has been termed the most extraordinary mission impossible - of plucking raw young recruits from within the Cadet Corps, training them to the highest level of horsemanship, mounting them on jumpers bred on the farms of Ireland and sending them out to compete against the international stars of equestrian sport at events around the world. Here, recounted in great detail and with stunning photographs, are the great highs and lows; the heartbreaks and excitements of top flight international competition in which the Army riders have always endeavoured to punch above their weight.
