Stallion/Mare Test (AU)

The Stallion/Mare Test (AU) is an additional process to the conformation and free movement assessment of breeding stock which is carried out on the annual ASPR Assessment Tours.  The Stallion/Mare Test (AU) acknowledges that the stallion/mare has shown both rideability and trainability by attaining a certain standard under saddle.

 

Any stallion or mare that has been assessed on a previous ASPR Tour or has been assessed/classified by an approved and recognised stud book, may be eligible to commence their application for a Stallion/Mare Test (AU)

title.

 

When a Stallion/Mare Test (AU) title is achieved, the title will be recorded in the ASPR online stud book, allowing potential breeders and buyers to see at a glance that the stallion or mare has successfully completed the Test.

 

Note : stallions/mares assessed with approved and recognised stud books other than the ASPR, must apply for ASPR registration before a Stallion/Mare Test (AU) title will be considered.  The owner must also become a current financial member of the ASPR.  

As the Stallion/Mare Test (AU) is a new initiative in Australia, stallions and mares may earn these titles retrospectively if they are deemed to have met the Test requirements.   Following successful registration with the ASPR (and the owner becoming a financial member), all applications for the titles will be considered.

Here are some examples to help understand the Stallion/Mare Test (AU) process :

Example 1  -  a filly foal was assessed and registered with the ASPR in 2013 for conformation and free movement and gained a total average score of 75% (minimum score required is 70% with no mark lower than 7).  As a 4 year old mare, she competes under saddle and gains a score of 7.0 at a Young Horse/Pony qualifier.  She is deemed to have completed Phase 1.

 

The mare then goes on to compete at the Australian Young Horse/Pony Championships (D& JWTS) and wins the 4 yo final.  The mare is deemed to have completed Phase 2 by gaining the required points and has now earned a Mare Test (AU) title.

 

Example 2  -  a 5 year old stallion was assessed and registered with the ASPR in 2015 and following his conformation, free movement and under saddle assessment, he gained a total average score of 73% (minimum score required is 70% with no mark lower than 7).  He is deemed to have completed Phase 1 as he completed the first under saddle requirement at his initial assessment.

 

The stallion then competes in an official EA Preliminary test and achieves a score of 72%  giving him 70 points.  He then gains a second score of 70% (and 70 points) so now has the required minimum of 100 points to be awarded the Stallion Test (AU).

 

Example 3  -  a colt foal was assessed for conformation and free movement with a recognised stud

book (other than the ASPR) in 2011 and gained a score of total average score of 75% (minimum score required is 70% with no mark lower than 7).  As a 5 year old stallion, he gained a score of 70% in an

official EA Preliminary Dressage test (satisfying Phase 1 of the ridden requirement).

 

The stallion then gained a second score of 70% in an official EA Preliminary Dressage Test earning 70 points towards the total of 100 points required for Phase 2.  He gains a 68% in an official EA Novice Dressage Test earning 70 points.  He has earned 140 points and has met the requirements of Phase 2. 

 

Although not registered with the ASPR at the time of assessment or gaining the required scores under saddle, upon successful application for registration and membership of the ASPR, the stallion is eligible for the Stallion Test (AU) title. 

Stallion/Mare Testing (AU) is an optional process.  It is not a compulsory requirement to progress to the Breeding Crown Titles

Phase 1

Applicable to stallions and mares who are registered and assessed in the ASPR Inc. Stud Book including Small Horse and Over Height Registers.

  • Stallion/Mare must be registered with the ASPR Inc.

  • Owner must be a current member of the ASPR Inc. 

  • Stallion must provide a DNA profile.

  • An assessment for conformation and free movement must be undertaken achieving a total minimum score of 70% with no mark lower than 7.0

  • If a mark less than 7.0 is received, the stallion/mare may be represented at a future assessment (NB: cannot be represented in the same year with the ASPR).

  • If the stallion/mare does not complete an ASPR assessment for the conformation and free movement phases, he/she must have been assessed/classified/inspected with an approved and recognised stud book and have achieved a total minimum score of 70% with no mark lower than 7.0

  • If the stallion/mare has been assessed with an approved and recognised stud book but has NOT been registered with the ASPR, a completed ASPR registration application and fee must be submitted prior to acceptance of the Stallion/Mare Test application.

  • In the case of an imported stallion, he must have been licensed with an approved and recognised stud book.

  • Stallion/mare must complete a ridden phase, either through assessment or via competition results. ​For the ridden assessment, stallion/mare must achieve a total minimum score of 70% with no mark lower than 7.0. If stallion/mare is not assessed under saddle, he/she must gain :

    • undertake a ridden assessment with a guest rider nominated by the ASPR and gain a score of no less than 70% with no mark lower than 7.0.

    • gain a score of no less than 70% in an official Equestrian Australia (EA) dressage competition, or

    • ​a score of no less than 7.0 at a Young Horse/Pony qualifier
