Horses for Courses – The Role of Horses in Australian History

Since settlement times horses have been used for many different types of work throughout Australia and abroad – from farms to forests, transport to sport, and industry to the light horse units of the military – horses have played an integral role in shaping the Australia we know today.

A Wartime Flashback

Traditionally, the 80km (50 mile) trek equated to the distance used to test mounts for light horse military service.
