We are now asking for members to put forward their best photos of their horses to be included in a Calendar for 2017. We are after action shots as well as Stallion, Mare and Foal photos or any that you hold close to your heart.
The calendar will be available for sale from December in our Merchandise section of our website. Make sure they are high resolution pictures and there are no watermarks if they are paid competition photos.....The more pictures, the better the calendar!!

The Werribee Park National Equestrian Centre is seeking Expressions of Interest for the Summer Horse Show: Breed Showcase and Extravaganza 2017.
The discontinuation of the Summer Royal Horse Show has saddened the Show Horse community, to lose such a prestigious event. The Equestrian Centre are looking at resurrecting this show in the first week of January, to return it to the success it once was. A Breed Showcase Extravaganza!
To facilitate such an event they need our support.
IDSHS(Aust) Inc. are seeking expressions of interest from our members who would be interested in attending this event. In conjunction we will be running a trade stand to promote the breed.
We would be operating our own rings i.e.: Judges, ribbons and stewards. WPNEC will provide tents, arena set up and Judge/Steward catering. This would be a great opportunity for the Society to hold an Irish Draught and Sport Horse Breed Display day and for members to meet and talk about and show off our horses to the public.
If you are interested in attending this event or helping out with the running of the day, please contact the secretary as soon as possible so we can reply to the centre with our interest.
