"Connemara Ponies can do everything"

This is not by chance the motto of breeders.

Connemara Ponies are all round talents.

They are very successful in all kinds of equestrian sports such as Dressage, Jumping, Cross-Country or Endurance Riding. They are also suited for carriage as well as western rides. Connemara Ponies are known for their more evenly and calm character which makes them a perfect partner for families. As they are no taller than 15 hands (= 152 cm), they are capable for both young and adult riders. Connemara ponies have a convincingly sedate manner and keep at work no matter what. Finally they are frugal to breed, feeling most comfortable in an open stable.

Keeps like a pony, rides like a horse
