The Connemara Pony is a native breed to Ireland. They originate from the rugged and beautiful landscape of the Connemara region in the west of Ireland. They were a vital part of life in rural Ireland in years gone by. They were used on the farm for ploughing, a mode of transport, a mount for hunting and also competed at the local shows with the children. Today the Connemara pony has evolved into a world-renowned sports pony, where they are seen competing at the top of their discipline.
