Probably the most significant point about Australia’s horses is that the same sires whose lines propelled horses to victory in the Olympics also sired champions in Campdrafting, Endurance, Polocrosse, Polo and Pony Club mounts.
SHOW JUMPING Comparatively small by Warmblood standards the ASH have tremendous spring, speed and athleticism. Competing in the FEI eventing, World qualifiers and the Beijing Olympic games.
POLO AND POLOCROSSE Athletic, calm mounts that are clever like to play games and have cat-like maneuvers. Australian Stock Horses are considered the official mount of polocrosse.
ENDURANCE RIDING With the prominent arab bloodline of ‘Shahzada’ and a strong influence of the Thoroughbred Stud book the ASH has proven itself to be a great endurance horse in many international events including the great desert race of Dubai.
CAMPDRAFTING Born out of working cow horses this sport has remained purely Australian to date. But uses the ‘Cut out’ and ‘run’ work similarly used in North Americas Working cow horse events. Futurities add the Hack and Halter events, which focus on the versatility of the ASH breed.
