The South Australian Branch of the Australian Stock Horse Society was formed at a meeting held in 1972, just twelve months after the Australian Stock Horse Society began in NSW. The SA Branch, as it was then known, was renamed SA Central Branch after the South East of South Australia branch was formed. Much camaraderie and sportsmanship is still present between the two branches in South Australia.
Over the years many members have given much of their time and knowledge to the SA Central Branch for the betterment of the branch and its members.
In 2012 we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of the SA Central Branch. We would like to thank and acknowledge all members, including past and present committee members, life members and loyal sponsors for their continued support and membership with the Australian Stock Horse Society.
The Australian Stock Horse Society aims to preserve and promote the bloodlines of the Australian Stock Horse, recognised for its versatility and superior performance amongst work and leisure breeds.
The ASHS has 66 Branches throughout Australia. The SA Central Branch conducts Shows, Futurities, Challenges and recently a successful Saddlery Swap Meet. The SACB offers High Point End of Year Trophies, cash & incentive awards over various disciplines (such as Polocrosse, Campdrafting, Hacking, Pony Club).
The SA Central Branch continues to grow and prosper with members taking part in the many Australian Stock Horse activities. The branch motto is:
“A commitment to excellence in breeding horses and building horsemanship.”
