APSB Breed Section Headings at Shows.
The wording of some headings of APSB breed sections at many agricultural and smaller shows
in all states is often confusing. To try and clarify what APSB breeds are eligible under specific
headings the following applies:
 Firstly, APSB is not a breed – it is a society that administers ten pure breeds and four registers under its umbrella.
 If the heading in a show program states APSB SECTION with no other clarification of eligible breeds then ALL ten pure breeds within the APSB stud book are eligible to compete i.e Australian, Welsh, Shetland, Highland etc.
 If the section is dedicated to a specific APSB breed then the heading must state so i.e. Ponies eligible for this section must be registered in the Australian section of the APSB Society – or whatever breed intended.
 Those ponies recorded in any of the four Registers within the APSB are INELIGIBLE to compete in classes dedicated to the APSB pure breeds.
 All ponies must be entered in the name of the registered owner who must be a financial member of the APSB Society Inc. It is not necessary for the handler, rider or driver to be a financial member.
