Welcome to the RPSBS Library


From its inception in 1975, RPSBS has been committed to keeping in touch with its members through printed newsletters, magazines and journals and, since 2005, the Annual. These printed publications contain so much of the history of RPSBS: they show how remarkably it has grown from relatively small beginnings to the point where Riding Ponies are unquestionably the dominant force in Australian show rings and are increasingly moving successfully in to other equestrian disciplines, most notably pony dressage. They also document the ponies that have had significant input into the development of the breed and the breeders who have been passionate in their quest for the ‘ultimate Riding Pony’.

That history can be all too easily lost. Commencing with the 2011 Annual, the National Board began publishing the Annual each year as an e-Annual on this website in order to ensure each Annual was preserved and also to make it accessible to a much wider audience than just RPSBS members.

The Board’s Promotional Committee has been aware for some time that the National Office does not have a complete set of the Society’s newsletters, yearbooks and annuals. In 2013 the Board commenced a project to source and electronically save all this material and publish it to the website. With the assistance of two former Board members, Dalveen Gregory of Rathowen Stud and Julia Youl of Fairfield Stud, the task of sourcing this material was completed in late 2013.  The process of scanning and saving the material electronically was also completed in 2013 and then began the long, slow job of converting the files to e-publications.

All of the Society’s publications from the first two page newsletter published in March 1977 to the 2015 40th Anniversary edition of the Annual are now in the Library. Just click on a title’s link below to go to the e-publication of your choice.
