Connemara [edit]

 

History
Connemara Ponies have existed in Western Ireland for many years, although the exact origins of the ponies are unclear. The barren, mountainous landscape has developed the Connemara into strong, hardy pony used for carrying loads of seaweed, peat, corn and potatoes to market and also used for agricultural work. In the 1700, Connemaras were crossed with Arabs horses, Hackneys and Thoroughbreds, but too much interbreeding led to a loss of the pony’s distinctive identity, so the Connemara Pony Breeders’ Society was founded in 1923 to preserve Connemara pony. Connemaras are now bred throughout the world in places such as America, Europe, South Africa and Australia as well as the UK and Ireland.
 
General Appearance 
The Connemara has a well shaped head, with small ears, compact body with medium length neck, fine sloping shoulder, strong back, well developed quarters and short legs. The Connemara Pony is commonly coloured grey, bay, black, brown or dun but occasionally roan, chestnut or palomino. 
 
Temperament 
The Connemara pony is good tempered, sensible and intelligent with good jumping ability. Connemara’s have a cheeky nature but are easily trainable.
 
Uses of the Connemara Pony
The Connemara horse is an excellent child or adult's pony. Its agility makes it an ideal pony for show jumping, dressage, although it also has the stamina for endurance races.
