The Halter Breeders Group Australia was formed in July 2013. The aim of the group is to increase interest in and promote the Western Halter Horse showing and breeding in Australia.

Through an annual stallion service auction, stallion owners promote the industry by donating a service for auction. The proceeds of the auction go towards the Annual HBGA Futurity Show, Halter Clinics and the sponsorship of state based futurities in Victoria, Queensland and South Australia by way of additional prize money for winning progeny of nominated stallions.

And don't forget - find us on Facebook for all the latest information and news!


2016 Western Breeders Congress

Our thanks to our US judges, Tim Finkenbinder and Clint Fullerton as well as our Aussie futurity judge, Lorelei Payne.
