Welcome to the Australian Stock Horse Society New Zealand Branch!

We are a new and growing organisation - only the second international Branch of ASHS - our members sharing a love and enthusiasm for that wonderful horse breed, the Australian Stock Horse.

Visit this site plus our Facebook page for news, information and education about all things Stock Horses.

As our presence in New Zealand grows, expect to see a range of events and demonstrations.

At the moment most of our members are involved in polocrosse, but we aim to encourage more diverse horse events, including campdrafting and hacking.

If you are a member of ASHS, or have any interest in Australian Stock Horses, please get in touch, we would love to hear from you!
