The Australian Stock Horse Society

The Australian Stock Horse Society was established in 1971 in Scone, New South Wales with the aim of preserving and promoting the bloodlines of the Australian Stock Horse, recognised for its versatility and superior performance amongst work and leisure breeds. Today the Society is Australia's largest equine recreational and pleasure association, with a loyal and growing membership of more than 9,500 individuals and in excess of 180,000 registered horses in the Stud Book.

Horse Registrations

Horse Registrations
We have received 429 registration applications this month, in just 12 working days. These are only NEW horse registrations and exclude other applications like: transfers, DNA, alterations, prefixes, inspections and the like. In the last 8 working days, we received 303 new registration applications.

We appreciate that many Members are wanting their applications processed urgently due to upcoming show seasons in many areas, as well as the Dalby ASH sale and the Landmark Classic sale nominations deadline. Anyone who has recently submitted, or yet to submit an application and requires it urgently will need to pay the additional priority fee of $55. When submitting urgent applications, it must include a letter clearly indicating that the application is URGENT, with all contact details (phone, mobile, fax and email), the event and date it is required and credit card details.

On average, the Society processes approximately 270 new registration applications per month. Some of our biggest days for August 2015 thus far have been: Tuesday 4th - 70 applications, Friday 7th - 69 applications, Tuesday 11th- 61 applications and Friday 14th - 78 applications. Simply, in these 4 days, we received 278 applications, which is equivalent to one month’s standard processing.

We would appreciate it if members could be patient at the moment and the Society will endeavour to complete these applications as soon as possible. If you have an urgent application, please ensure that the Society is aware of when you require the registration.
