Originally a combination of several breeds including the Thoroughbred, Arab, and Timor and Welsh Mountain ponies, the Australian Stock Horse has evolved to become a distinctive breed in its own right.
Although they were initially used for stock work and exploration by the early settlers, more than 120,000 Australian Stock Horses went on to serve in the First World War. Their strength, stamina and courage earned them international recognition as the finest cavalry mounts in the world and established their place in Australian history and folklore.
