Welcome to the Australian Pony Stud Book Society

  • The APSB was founded in 1931 and was the first society for the registration of ponies established in Australia.

    Today, there are ten pure bred pony breeds plus four pony registers under the APSB umbrella.
    No other society can offer so many different pony breeds under the one registration.
    Please visit our 'How to' page for more information on how to become a member or register a pony

    The extent of activities suitable for any of the APSB pony breeds is as endless as your imagination.
    Each breed has proven itself in many fields of equine sports, from the absolute elite of the show world
    to the fundamental use of a pony as a reliable mount and friend for a child.
