By eye how tall would you say the pony below is? Im about 5'3/5'4 for reference. Im guessing shes between 13.3 and 14.1?
We also believe shes a connemara but we cant be sure since shes a rescue, any suggestions on breed would be helpful.

It’s impossible to tell from that picture, you’d need to stand her up square and measure from foot to wither, either with a tape or stick, if you don’t have a horse measure a regular tape measure will work.

I agree with @Jessey , it's impossible to have even a wild guess from a ridden picture. You need to measure her as described, ideally with a stick, on level ground to get at least a rough height - you'll only get a reasonably accurate one if you have a proper measuring stick with spirit levels in.

If you want a bit of an idea, a hand is 4inches. Get someone to hold a tape with you, floor to withers, divide the inches by 4. Not accurate to the cm, but an idea at least.
