In Ireland, Best Place to See Connemara Ponies?

On the Connemara peninsula, where's the best place to see these ponies in the wild?
Thanks!

Not to be smart would not the obvious answer be up in the Connemara? Take a ride up between Clifen and
Westport, (Both worth a vist) and ask some locals and I sure they can point you to a a breeder or a farm. If the Wx is right a trip to the Connermara Nat. Park is a nice day trip. Have fun.

Again I was not trying to be sarcastic. Clifdenis known as the center for Connermara ponies I believe the annual show is held there each summer. I recall in town center a large visitors center that had quite a bit of information on the ponies with photos of past champions. I am sure they can point you to a location where you can actually see some. Have fun
