The Stock Horse

In the early 1800’s Thoroughbred stallions were imported into New South Wales and bred with the local mares that were hardened to the harsh Australian conditions to improve the local horse strains and thus produced the tough but stylish Australian Stock Horse.

The Stock Horse comes in a variety of colours and stands 15 – 16 hands high. They have a very alert nature, with a deep girth, strong back and hindquarters. They are an extremely versatile and hardy horse and can be used for stock work, endurance work, polo and even competitions - from dressage to showjumping.
