australian stock horse

The ancestry of the Stock Horse includes the Arabian horse, Barb horse , American Quarter Horse and Thoroughbred. Horses in Australia were initially bred for their stamina and strength with weaker horses culled and only the stronger horses bred. In the 1830's Thoroughbreds were imported into Australia to improve the local strains and the crossing of the Thoroughbred stallions with the hardy local mares produced the basis of the Australian Stock Horse

The Australian Stock Horse (or Stockhorse), has been especially bred for Australian climatic conditions. Horses were introduced to Australia for the first time with the arrival of the First Fleet in Botany Bay in January, 1788.
