Heritage Stock Horse - From the Boardroom
Whilst the Society currently undertakes routine assessment of the eligibility of horses, this process will not be complete prior to the introduction of the new rules. Accordingly, should members be concerned that their horses may not be eligible after the introduction of the new rules, they are invited to make application to the Society to undertake the assessment pursuant to the currently rules, at the cost of the applicant.
