The history of the Australian Stock Horse dates back to the arrival of Australia’s first horses with the First Fleet in 1788.
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.
