John Dennis was perhaps the most famous and fearless rider that even the
County Galway has ever known. The Galway Blazers were too slow for him, so he
hunted a pack of his own. He is famous for his great saying: "Throw your heart
over, and your horse will follow." Another saying was - "No man can be called
a good rider till he knows how to fall."
