Heritage Stock Horses

The Australian Stock Horse Society is dedicated to preserving the heritage of the breed by recognising Registered Australian Stock Horses that have descended from the same breeds as horses ridden by the Australian Light Horse in WWI and breeds that resided in Australia prior to 1945.

Automatically Eligible for Heritage Stock Horse
Horses are automatically eligible for Heritage Stock Horse if both sire and dam OR a full sibling have been HSH Approved. In which case, the following scenarios apply:

BOTH PARENTS being HSH, the Society will automatically update the progeny as HSH with the next batch of updates.
FULL SIBLING being HSH and one or both parents are not HSH, Members may submit a written request for HSH approval to the Society by including a copy of the Online Stud Book printout indicating HSH for the full sibling.
