Welcome to the
Australian Sports Pony Registry
Congratulations to the 4 yo Young Pony National Champion Glamour Rock BHI who is by the ASPR Elite stallion Golden Rock (EBC).
Winning the ASPR sponsored garland for the Champion Rising Star Led Pony was Oro Diablo owned by Shannon McKimmie.
The Australian Sports Pony Registry Inc. (“ASPR”) is delighted to announce that it has entered into an association with the Westphalian Verband in Germany to register eligible foals, approve eligible mares and license eligible pony stallions.
NEW - Ridden and/or jumping only assessments
Ponies and horses that have previously been assessed and registered with the ASPR for conformation and free movement only, may now apply for a ridden and/or jumping assessment without re-presenting for the conformation and free movement phases.
The ridden and/or jumping assessment score will be added to the existing grading. Changes to grading status (eg: 1st Premium to Premium or Premium to Elite) will be recorded in the ASPR Stud Book.
If your pony/horse has been assessed for conformation and free movement only with a recognised and approved stud book/registry, application may be made to the ASPR Federal Office to have those scores recognised.
Owner must be a current ASPR financial member.
If you are interested in booking a ridden and/or jumping only assessment on the forthcoming National Tour, please contact the ASPR Federal Office.
ASPR HRCAV Club
The ASPR is now affiliated with the HRCAV (Horse Riding Clubs Association of Victoria) and invites riders of both ponies and horses to join our new club.
Membership forms now available here . . .
The new membership year commences on 1st November, 2020
NEW Golden Garland
High Score Dressage Pony Award
A new Annual Award initiative by the ASPR for the highest scoring dressage pony at an official EA event from Preliminary to Grand Prix
Did you know that you do not have to have your pony or horse assessed on the ASPR Tour to be able to register with the ASPR?
The ASPR offers membership and registration benefits for Non-assessed ponies and horses that other organisations just cannot match!
If you simply require a registration that lists the pedigree of your pony or horse, then Non-assessed registration is the way to go.
Breeding Crown Titles
for Stallions and Mares
Breeding Crown and Elite Breeding Crown Titles are now available to ASPR registered stallions and mares to recognise their breeding value through progeny who consistently produce performance results to a high standard.
The ASPR introduces to Australian breeders a new Stallion/Mare Test (AU) which will recognise stallions and mares as undergoing additional performance requirements to their initial assessment.

Grand Champion Dressage Pony Award
$250 plus inscribed rug will be awarded to ponies who outscore open horses at an official EA Championship event.
Small Horse and Over Height Registers
Horses are eligible for Annual High Point Awards and the much sought after Roll of Merit Awards.
Annual High Point & Roll of Merit Awards
2021 Annual High Point and Roll of Merit Awards are now open (1/1/21 to 31/12/21).
Entry is FREE to ASPR members with registered ponies
Do you own a registered ASPR Pony?
Or, have you purchased one in the past few years? Your ASPR pony may already have earned points towards their Roll of Merit Awards.
Check out the ASPR online stud book to look up your pony's registration, then contact the ASPR to see if your pony has already earned points.
Once a pony is ASPR registered, the pony is registered for life. The owner only needs to be a current member each year so that the pony is eligible for the ROM Awards (as well as the Annual High Point Awards). Entry is FREE and all you have to do is submit results online here. The owner does not have to be the rider. The pony may have multiple rider as the ASPR Awards are for the pony, regardless of rider.
Property Identification Code Number
All states and territories in Australia (other than the ACT) now require property owners that have one or more horses on the property to register for a Property Identification Code or PIC.
If you have not already applied for a PIC or are unsure of whether you need to apply for one, click on the link below for the state you are located in which will give you the information required.
Note that registration is free in most states but some do have a fee.
