The Australian Standardbred Breeders Association (ASBA) was established in 1990 as the Peak National Body of State Breeders Associations.
ASBA is a non-profit industry Body established for the benefit of the Standardbred Breeding Industry and is comprised of one Representative Member from each State, who has State Voting Rights for meetings and governance.
ASBA is recognised by Harness Racing Australia and all State Controlling Bodies as the National Breeding Industry Body. It is currently funded by contributions by State Controlling Bodies on a pro-rata basis, linked to the quantum of foaling numbers in each State.
ASBA takes a leadership role on issues of national significance, such as Quarantine, Bio-security, Animal Welfare, Taxation, Disaster relief
(flood, drought etc.) and other matters relevant and advanced by State Breeding Associations for their participants at the National level.
ASBA contributes as a Member on the HRA Committee for Equine Breeding, Animal Welfare and Registration.
ASBA is an essential part of the Australia harness racing institutional framework.
ASBA is a National representative body designed to work closely with HRA and with state breeding organisations and state controlling bodies.
ASBA vision is to coordinate with State breeding bodies to implement a National breeding strategy.
Including working with HRA on projects such as a central breeding register, provide expertise on animal welfare and bio security and to undertake public relations to breeders in Australia and support the work of HRA and state bodies in these matters.
It is ASBA's desire is to help implement some of the core issues and ideas documented in the 2011 Australian Standardbred Breeding Panel report.
