Welcome to the website for the
Standardbred Pleasure and Performance Horse Association of NSW.
Our 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.

"Those who know the breed will claim the Standardbred is one of the world's best kept secrets. A breed that in addition to being the fastest horse in harness also excels under saddle and faces every task asked of it with gentleness, patience and a bottomless heart."
Horse Illustrated, 1993

The charter of the Standardbred Pleasure & Performance Horse Association is to promote the Standardbred as a successful and versatile horse that can excel in many disciplines outside their traditional role of harness racing.
Through an adoption program we will endeavour to locate suitable pleasure and performance homes for Standardbred horses retired from or otherwise unsuitable for harness racing.
We will encourage Standardbred owners to develop their horsemanship skills and the potential of their horses by guiding them to appropriate resources.
We will recognise the achievements of Standardbreds in all equestrian disciplines outside of harness racing.
A Standard Journey - 5 horses, 2 people, 1 tent.
