Contact the Australian Horse Industry Council for Updates on Equine Influenza Outbreak


Several good links exist from the horse council website to inform owners on EI. In addition, the Australian Horse Industry Council operate a contact database to alert horse owners during emergencies, i.e. disease outbreaks, flood and fire. Alerts are free, and communicated by mobile text or email. Information is held on a confidential basis and is only utilised in emergency. www.horsecouncil.org.au

Classification Day


Classification day for 2007 has been cancelled due to restrictions on horse transport, subsequent to outbreaks of equine influenza in New South Wales and Queensland. Consequently, mare and gelding classifications will be available for this time only, regardless of location, by video. The date of assessment is to be arranged although it is hoped this will go ahead some time this year.


It is necessary for all breeding stock and show horses over the age of 4yo to be classified. Classification is an important tool that is utilised to improve the quality of breeding stock in Australia. More information about classification can be found on the main website of AHHBA.







Our September newsletter has been distributed along with annual fee notices. The newsletter contains a special tribute to the memory of the late Father of the Modern Haflinger, Otto Schweisgut, and features a range of stories and pictures from both Austria and Australia. Stories are presently being gathered for the next edition, please send them in.
