2018 National Assessment

and Classification Tour 

The Australian Sports Pony Registry conducted the 2018 Tour in partnership with Trakehners Australia, the Holsteiner Horse Association Australia and the Independent Pinto Horse Society. 

For the ASPR assessment, each pony/horse was assessed individually for conformation and free movement with ponies/horses aged 3 yrs and over having the option of assessment under saddle and/or jumping assessment.

Scores are used by each group for their own assessment and classification purposes with all horses and ponies who participate in the Tour eligible for the prestigious National Breed Show Awards where all results are compiled at the end of the Tour.

Ponies/Horses registered with the ASPR are eligible for

ASPR National Tour Awards.
