APSB Promotional Groups were set up to promote either the breed or to encourage members in a geographic area to get together. Most of these groups have a wonderful social side to them as well as promoting APSB ponies. The Australian Pony Stud Book Society has nine breeds under its umbrella including the Australian Pony, Shetland Pony, Welsh Pony, Dartmoor Pony, New Forest Pony, Hackney Pony, Highland Pony, Connemara Pony and Fjord Horse as well as the four registers run for APSB Riding Ponies, Timor Ponies, Gypsy Cobs and Part-Bred Ponies. With all these breeds to cater for, a number of Promotional Groups have been established to ensure all breeds have events meeting their needs. The Victorian Branch of the APSB has a number of groups around Victoria which promote either the APSB in a region or a particular breed or the APSB group. These groups are there to promote the breed/s and any member can be a part of the group.
