Australian Horse Owners Society (AHOS)

  • Australian Horse Owners Society

    One day, there will be pretty graphics here. We'll make a logo, it'll be awesome. For now, welcome!

    Who we are
    The AHOS are just a group of enthusiasts who love the various flavours of Aussie horse. From brumbies to stock horses to Australian warmbloods, Aussie breeds can often go unsung in the wider more international landscape of Equus. We're here to showcase the unique talents of Australian horses through shows and challenges, as well as connect owners and breeders to help grow the different Australian breeds.

    Why Aussie?
    Currently, Aussie breeds in general are short on horse numbers, so splitting them up seems a bit silly. There's also something to be said for Aussie mateship, and the general pool of common content that can be shared between our Aussie horses and farms.

    What breeds are Australian?
    Australia has a few proud breeds of horse that have developed with the needs of the nation over the years. At the AHOS, we include all Australian breeds, notably:

    • Australian Stock Horse
    • Australian Brumby
    • Australian Waler (pending)
    • Australian Pony
    • Australian Warmblood
    • Australian Sport Horse

    The Australian horse covers all disciplines from stock work to olympic riding, and almost everything in between. If you'd like more information on any of these breeds, click on their name above to see a short guide on each (coming soon)!

    Events and Challenges
    As part of promoting the Australian horse, we aim to showcase its versatility and the more unique aspects that aren't always seen. Expect stock auctions, muster challenges, friendly team challenges and discipline showcases in future!

    Many of these breeds show a varied conformation depending on purpose and breeding - we encourage you to modify and experiment with these templates! If these templates don't show correctly, you may be missing sliders! Make sure you have all of the sliders downloaded from our CC Database (just in case).
