Today the Society is the largest Equine Recreational and Pleasure Association in Australia, with a loyal and growing membership of more than 9,500 individuals and in excess of 180,000 registered horses.

He shipped stock out from England, including horses, one of which, the thoroughbred Crawford, is believed to have been the first sire used in the region.
One of his sons got some of the early Australian Stock Horses, a breed that like the thoroughbred paved the way for Scone becoming not only the Horse Capital of Australia but a byword among horse people around the world and the focus of the Horse Festival conducted in May each year.
Today, the Segenhoe Valley is one of the great thoroughbred showplaces of the world with breeding farms including Arrowfield, Vinery (formerly Segenhoe), the new Segenhoe, Kia Ora, Turangga and Alabama.
Overlooking the southern end of the southern end of the Segenhoe valley is Darley, Scone & Upper Hunter Horse Festival Official Programme 2012 41 the Australian headquarters of the world wide breeding and racing empire established by Sheikh Mohammed, the ruler of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.
Also on the fringe of the Segenhoe valley is the emerging Kitchwin Hills stud, while closer to Scone two active studs are Ann Raymond’s Sledmere and the Mitchell’s Yarraman Park.
Early last century both these studs were owned by members of the Thompson family, a branch of the one that has headquartered on the historic Widden stud in the Widden valley offshoot of west Hunter valley for more than a hundred and fifty years.
At Scone, the Thompsons bred Eurythmic, one time Australia’s highest earning racehorse.
Two historic breeding farms near Scone are Turanville, a property established by the Dangars and in the late 1800s reportedly home for over one thousand head of horses, stock horses and thoroughbreds, and St Aubins.
In mid last century St Aubins functioned for industrial tycoon W.J. ‘Knockout’ Smith and among the sires he stood was the famous Beau Pere. Image courtesy Scone & Upper Hunter Horse Festival Committee The St Aubins homestead is currently home for Smith’s granddaughter Kate Fraser and her son George has the Ilala stud on the opposite side of the highway.
Besides the historic stud farms, the Scone region has numerous top quality agistment farms and is one of the major country training and racing centres.
Nearly two hundred years after the Scone region greeted its first horse, its history continues to grow and provide more reason to celebrate Scone: The Horse Capital of Australia.
