We invite you to be a part of the National Tour with assessments, classifications and inspections in all states of Australia.

Scheduled to commence on the 3rd March, horse and pony owners from all over Australia are invited to participate in the 2019 National Tour with International Breed Judge (Zuchtricher FN), Frank Weisskirchen from Germany.

If you would like your horse or pony assessed/inspected for the Australian Sports Pony Registry Inc., the Holsteiner Horse Society of Australia Ltd or the Independent Pinto Horse Society Inc., it must be registered with that group and the owner a current member.

The National Tour also offers Open inspections for horses not registered with any of the participating groups.


Each pony/horse is assessed/scored individually for conformation and free movement with ponies/horses aged 3 yrs and over having the option of assessment/scoring under saddle and/or jumping.


Scores will be used by each group for their own assessment and classification purposes.

An exciting part of the 2019 Tour will be the information sessions to be held at various venues around Australia (dates/venues to be advised) to discuss a proposed stallion and mare performance testing system specifically for Australia.
