Description: Over the past decade, an extraordinary horse culture has evolved in the suburban housing estates of Dublin. Teenagers from the families of the poor and often unemployed have been keeping their ponies on patches of green in the city wastelands. Perry Ogden has photographed the kids and their ponies as formal portraits. The results document an endangered tribe. The survival of ponies in the midst of concrete is a challenge to the authorities' notion of housing order, and the presence of these ponies is now a political issue. If they vanish, so too does a link to a tradition much valued in the city.

Ogden's portraits are accompanied by the voices of these pony-mad adolescents, describing the thrills and trials of horse ownership among the children of the urban dispossessed in J Dublin. Fintan O'Toole's commentary guides us through the complex rituals and social forces that shape the lifestyles of these bands of kids on horseback, and which connect them to Ireland's ethnic nomads, the Travelers.
