"Raising Welsh ponies is more than just a career for Adele Rockwell; it is a way of life. Steeped in the history and heritage of this ancient breed, she has channelled her knowledge and love of these animals into a successful breeding and training farm that she operates with her husband, Dick. Today, her ponies, with their distinctive characteristics and fine temperament, are renowned among horse fanciers and are consistent winners at competitions throughout North America. A warm film portrait of a woman whose success is measured by her dedication to and the pure pleasure derived from her work."
