THE affable Dickie Power, farmer and hunting enthusiast - well known to most of our readers through his hunting columns and features in The Irish Field - is looking for a suitable hack.

A quiet reliable horse that that he can ride around the farm at home, preferably not too big, under 16hh is the order of the day.

“A retired hunter might suit (no buck) for a retired rider, age immaterial as long as sound. A long life on the pastures of the Golden Vale guaranteed” – in his own words.
