Sports Equestrian Breeds Australian Stock Horse
7
In 1971 when setting up the ASHS, the Waler became the foundation stock of the Australian Stock Horse.
A Waler is not actually a breed, but a name coined by the British, and actually meant any stock bred in Australia before the end of the Second World War. Walers were a popular, and very successful cavalry mount, due to their hardiness, and resistance to disease.
The Australian Stock Horse is made up of many bloodlines, including German Warmbloods, Quarter hoses, and the modern Thoroughbreds. Many Australian Stock Horses still retain the qualities of the true Waler horse.
