Thank you for visiting the Australian Little Horse & Miniature Breeds Association 
Inc. (ALHMBA) website.  The society was formed in January 2004 with the 
dedicated assistance of a small group of people who like you are keen to 
promote the Australian Little Horse & Small Pony and work towards being 
recognized as one of the most progressive society's for the registrations 

of  Australian Little Horse & Small Pony.

 

The Society has an open stud book in place which allows the Registry to process 
registrations for currently unregistered stock.  So if you are the proud owner of a 
horse or pony that is going to waste in your paddock for lack of registration then 
we invite you to join the growing membership of the Australian Little Horse & 

Miniature Breeds Association Inc.

 

We offer registrations for Horse types that do not exceed 10.2hh (42") for 
showing purposes & for Pony types that do not exceed 9.2hh (38") for showing 
purposes.  We also have an ever increasing Appendix Breeding section for all 
mares that do not quite fit the Horse/Pony criteria, these mares must not 
exceed 12hh, a Gelding section is also available as well as the Stallion section. 
 Also a Stallion section has been put in place to cater for those owner's that 
have small  purebred or part bred welsh stallions that they would like to breed 
Australian Little Horses from,  these stallions must not however be in excess of 

11hh to be eligible for ID Stallion registration.

 

The Australian Little Horse is becoming a very popular choice as children's 
saddle mounts, as leading rein mounts & also for harness as they are quick to 
  learn, have excellent length of stride, are smaller & more refined than a lot of 
  other children's ponies and most importantly they adapt very quickly to family 
  life.  Adding to the spice is the fact that ALH&MBA breeds come in every equine 
  colour imaginable, and many of these are also registered with a known colour 
 

society.

 

  Please check out the forms on the Downloads page on the website everything 
  you need to start is there.  For any further enquiries please contact the 
  Secretary.
