Horse Research and Developments

The Rural Industries Research and Developments Corporation (RIRDC) horse program aims to assist in developing the Australian Horse Industry and enhancing it’s export potential.

The horse industry is one of Australia’s largest rural industries and is worth more than $8 billion a year.

There are about 1.2 million horses used for racing, equestrian sports and recreation.

The large breeding industry in Australia produces the second highest number of thoroughbred foals in the world after the USA.
