The founders of  the Waler Horse Owners and Breeders Association of Australia Inc. set the original Criteria and Standards for the Australian Waler as a breed in 1987 when establishing the Waler Horse Society of Australia Inc.

The establishment of the Australian Waler horse as a breed came about as a result of extensive in depth research - including, but not limited to, grass roots interviews, reference to archival documents from many and varied sources - into the circumstances, contributing breeds, and selection criteria which contributed to the evolution of the breed of horse known as the Waler.

The Waler Horse Owners and Breeders Association of Australia Inc. continue to apply the ideals and principles constituting a Waler as originally defined, however has had no allegiance to, and therefore takes no responsibility nor liability for the decisions and/or actions sanctioned by the Waler Horse Society of Australia Inc. since the year 2005.

The Waler Horse Owners and Breeders Association Australia Inc. is in no way involved with the 2013 EQUITANA Mitavite 'Waler Legacy Project', nor do we recognise the horses utilised for the event as Walers without efficient supporting information and details.
