The Connamara Pony

The Connemara Pony is known for their athleticism, versatility and good disposition. The breed makes excellent show ponies.

They can be spotted around the area and are mostly grey but also brown and black. Some believe that the Connemara developed from Scandinavian ponies that the Vikings first brought to Ireland. Others say that they are bred from Spanish horses which came ashore when The Spanish Armada ran aground in 1588.
