The Australian Stock Horse
In past years the Australian Stock Horse has been widely used throughout Australia on cattle stations and as a favored mount worldwide for cavalries during war. Today the Australian Stock Horse has evolved into a high performance horse due to its versatility, quiet temperament, intelligence and athletic ability. With its versatility, the Australian Stock Horse has achieved outstanding success in a wide variety of sports including show jumping, dressage, eventing, pony club events, polo, polocrosse and campdrafting (an Australian sport involving cutting a cow and steering it around a course). Anyone would agree that they are distinctive, unique, capable and made for Australian conditions.
The First World War, and particularly the Allenby campaign against the Turks, created a reputation for the Australian Stock Horse as being the finest cavalry horse in the world. The horse could carry heavy loads, had great stamina and strong riding qualities. So remarkable were these traits that the horse was shipped to cavalries all over the world during the War. Upon their return to Australia, however, the horses were quarantined and soon destroyed in the desert by government order. Today there is a memorial to commemorate this sturdy breed in Sydney.
