Hi, just wondering if anyone has ridden Connemaras and if so can you give me your opinion of them? bearing in mind all are individuals of course. The breeders sites extoll their virtues but then all breed sites do that with their own breed. What are they really like? Stubborn? Headstrong? Like to run? More sedate? Like work? Like to loaf? How would they go if ridden say half an hour a day, late afternoon. Are they going to need lunging for half an hour before they're safe to mount? I really don't want a high powered performance type mount. Nor do I want a tall mount. It's not the getting on that's the problem, it's the getting down again. I have a ruptured disc, sciatica and a dodgy left leg. I just want to be able to get on a horse and go for a sedate walk round the paddocks in the afternoon without risking my life. This is supposed to be an extension of my fitness routine. Opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.
