The Australian Pony is a pony breed originated in Australia from crossing various imported pony breeds.

The origins of the Australian Pony:
Ponies are not new to Australia. During the 19th, Timor ponies and ponies of various British breeds were imported and incorporated into daily life. In 1931, the Australian Pony Stud Book society was established to record and manage the breeding of the ponies.

Among the sections of the studbook was the section for Australian Ponies, which was intended for ponies that resulted from crossing different pony breeds. More specifically, these were crossings between Timor ponies and British pony breeds with Welsh Cobs, Hackneys, and small Arabians and Thoroughbreds that created the Australian Pony.

The Australian Pony today:
Originally, the Australian Pony's studbook was an open one, allowing Australian Ponies to be crossed with other British pony breeds. However, in 2005 the studbook was closed for crossbreeding.

Today, Australian Ponies serve as driving ponies, as well as children's mounts for jumping and eventing.

Conformation:
Australian Ponies have a short head with large eyes and large nostrils, small ears, a straight profile, a muscular neck of medium-to-long length, prominent withers, and rounded croup. The mane is short or medium in length, and the legs are clear from feathering.
