We are excited to introduce this new initiative for the 2021 AANC, The Arabian Stock Horse Feature. Brought about in an effort to bring attention to this fabulous registry of the AHSA and improve competitor numbers in this section.
Sponsored by SPLASH (Supporters, Promoters & Lovers of Arabian Stock Horses), we sincerely thank this group of dedicated breeders/owners for their enthusiastic support of their breed. The Arabian Stock Horse registry is relatively new, introduced to the AHSA Stud Book in 2003. An Arabian Stock Horse is one derived exclusively from either Arabian and Studbook Australian Stock horse breeding or Arabian, Thoroughbred and Studbook Australian Stock Horse where the minimum proportion of Arabian blood is not less than 12.5%.
The blending of the blood of these most versatile of breeds consistantly produces horse of exceptional athletic ability, with sound minds and fabulous good looks.
This year our program offers 6 qualifying heats and 2 Championship finals in halter & one Ridden Championship Final, where the awards will be Gold, Silver & Bronze Champions with a top 5; Gold, Silver & Bronze Champions will be awarded special one off, embroidered Trophy Rugs along with our exclusive Mary Pinsent Bronze trophies and beautiful Australian Championship Sashes. This section has been fully funded by the SPLASH group as well as providing us remuneration for promotion.
