Julia Reilly lives in the West of Ireland where the Connemara ponies are famous. Julia is an Englishwoman who has noticed that there are fewer and fewer Connemara ponies in Ireland. She sets out to change that. Her plan calls for local horse breeders to sell their ponies to English buyers who are willing to pay high prices. The local owners don't trust this Englishwoman's idea and are resistant to change. Find out how Julia, a 15 year old named Joyce and a fabulous pony change things for the locals.
