Welcome to Standardbred Pleasure & Performance Horse Association of New South Wales Inc.


The ideal pleasure horse is calm, strong, hardy and willing - this describes most Standardbreds perfectly!

People are slowly discovering that this gentle, reliable, versatile breed shines at a variety of activities - trail riding, pony club, ARC, dressage, jumping, endurance, showing and eventing.

SPPHA NSW's main goal is to promote the Standardbred horse in equestrian activities beyond their lives in Harness Racing and to find homes for them when they finish their racing careers.
