The Australian Stock Horse was originally brought to Australia, then the colony of N.S.W., in 1788. Because of the unknown, untamed land the horses came to, they needed to be strong, reliable, have good stamina and temperament. These characteristics were selected for during the early years of the breed currently making it considered one of the most versatile horses in the world. This breed has been used for everything from a war horse in World War I to show jumping and general riding today. In Horse Isle, this breed is only found in the desert. The Australian Stock Horse ranges from 15-16hh.
