Connemara Mares
Our Geldings
Connemaras are an Irish breed that range in height from about 14 to 15 hands. Hardy by nature this
breed is not only durable but also very athletic. They are versatile, naturing, and are all heart. They
excel in a variety of disciplines. Click for
Breed Standards. Big Bear Farm has been raising Connemara
ponies since 1982. Our foundation mares and stallions came from old original Connemara lines like
Tarzan, Camus John, Coosheen Finn, and many others. Our stallion Fergus  has done it all having
won at Intermediar Dressage, Preliem Eventing, Hunters, jumpers, and USDF In Hand Competitions.
We use our Connemaras in our breeding program, our riding program, and Enoch Ministries, our
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy program. Our ponies truly do it all. They compete with us and our
students in Dressage, Combined Training, Jumpers, and other enjoyable events. We take then to the
beach, and do hunter paces with them. In our breeding program we have found our foals to have a
consistently wonderful disposition, versatile talents, and extremely true to the breed. With Enoch
Ministries our horses have the opportunity to do what they do best, what they were created for,
loving divinely and healing the hearts and minds of many who come. Below are our ponies and
horses for you to enjoy. If you are interested in what we do with these wonderful ponies scroll
through this site to the various programs we offer.
