Australian QH are all originally imported from the US.

ASH were founded on a mix of predominantly Australian TB, with some pony and Arab breeding as well. A lot of the same lines as Walers.

The Australian QH's seem to have avoided taking the extreme conformation route that you see so much in some of the US breed or do you have those as well?

Oh the whole they are a lot better. We do have halter lines which have the same problems but to a lesser extent. We have a lot of QH bred for the cutting/camp draft/challenge industries which generally keeps it in check as they have to be well built to be able to move nicely enough for the patterns in a challenge.

So do you have a reason for preferring the ASH to the QH or is it just a personal thing?
Is the ASH more likely to perform well in other competitive events than the QH?
They seem to have a more TB look about them

I personally prefer the look of a good ASH - a bit finer than a QH and I am a stickler for a good neck set - I much prefer a higher set neck with a proud arch and not too bully. A lot of QH have the lower set neck which is quite thick.

For camp drafting, I also prefer the ASH. The QH are improving as more are bred specifically for the sport, but in general the QH are good in the camp but can struggle to run as well outside. The TB influence gives the ASH a longer stride and a bit more ability to keep balanced while galloping around a circle shouldering a beast.

Of course there are lots of QH I do like - but I also really enjoy ASH shows and you need an ASH registered horse to compete at them. Though my colt is 1/4 QH, he will still have ASH registration.

After saying all that the horse I'm buying to ride when I get home is a full cutting bred QH, no ASH, lol!

Lol Yep!

ASH are what I want to breed, but I can find something I like in most horses! My best horse is a full Arab. I wouldn't mind having a play with some Arab and QH into ASH but want to get established with ASH lines first. Though if this QH mare turns out to be talented I might get a baby from her :)

Back to the stallions - I keep going back and forth with Justice and Gigolo. I might have to go on a road trip when I get home and go visit them both to get a better idea!
