Smithfield market happens on the first Sunday of the month in Dublin, Ireland. Hundreds of people buy and sell horses and ponies there.
The market's a unique Irish experience but the animals can be mistreated. We would like to see a balance between preserving tradition and improving the ponies' welfare.
This site has the latest developments surrounding the market in addition to pictures and past newspaper articles.
