Australian Haflinger Breeding & Sports Association
The Australian Haflinger Breeding and Sports Association has been established for the promotion and breeding of Haflinger horses in Australia. We pride ourselves on the following the strict rules and regulations set down by the World Haflinger Federation.
The Haflinger Horse was originally from the town of Hafling in the South Tyrol Mountains. The Haflinger Breed originated in 1874 with the birth of the stallion Folie who was sired by an Arabian stallion and a mare from a Tyrolean indigenous mountain breed. All subsequent Haflinger stallions and mares can be traced back to that mating.
