About The Connemara Breed

The Connemara is famous for being hardy and sure-footed, and no surpirse. The breed evolved on the rocky coast of western Ireland, where it had to develop an ability to move quickly across rough terrain. The harsh Irish weather and unforgiving landscape helped develop a breed that is resiliant and adaptable, and today's Connemara is valued for all of these qualities.

Today's Connemara is gaining popularity throughout the world as both an adult and children's pony. Its temperament and adaptability makes it well suited to a variety of disciplines, from jumping to dressage to endurance.
