Ireland's only native pony is elegant, intelligent and probably the best performance pony breed. Their original breeding is lost in history, but it may owe much to Barb and Spanish horss introduced in the 6th century BC. In the late 19th century, Welsh blood was introduced, as was thoroughbred and hackney. The Connemera Pony Breeders' Society was set up in 1923.

Colour: usually grey, though may be black, brown or bay.

Height: between 13 and 14hh.

Conformation: neat, well-carried head, sloping shoulder, deep compact body, short legs.

Character: sensible, kind, intelligent.
