Comes a Horseman

Over the years Tom na gCapaillín has travelled to horse shows and events the length and breadth of Ireland. So much so that he is a well known figure among the equestrian community as well a recognised authority on a matters pertaining to horse breeding, training and care of horses generally. His book I Want to Really Learn about Horses is widely consulted (available in print and e-book editions - more information).

In addition, he has picked up numerous mementos and awards for all his hard work and efforts. He shares a few of them with us here.
