Connemaras range between 13 hands to 14.2 hands and are sturdily built, with an attractive pony head, good depth of girth and free-flowing action. They are very agile, with good feet and legs (a benefit of their heritage in the rough, craggy terrain of Galway). Their coat color can be dun, bay, black, brown or grey.
The Connemara crossed with breeds such as the Thoroughbred are also very popular as this mix then produces a horse rather than a pony and adds depth of girth, bone and docility to the athleticism of the Thoroughbred.
