The GRP pedigree database

German Riding Ponies Australia now has an extensive pedigree database* listing imported German Riding Ponies and other European bred 

Sports/Dressage Ponies, including progeny bred in Australia.

The pedigree database has been created for all German Riding Pony and other European bred Sport/Dressage Pony breeders, owners and enthusiasts and to record the history of these ponies in Australia.

Pedigrees have been collated using a variety of online stud books, web sites and even the old printed variety of stud book, to bring to breeders and owners a ONE stop shop to look up a pedigree.

If you own or have bred progeny from an imported stallion and would like your horse or pony to be included, please complete the online application form or contact German Riding Ponies Australia

Where a pedigree is not listed in full, or a date of birth, colour etc is missing, or you believe the information may be incorrect for the horse or pony, please feel free to email. This database is still very much a work in progress and pedigrees are frequently being extended and updated. 


  • Where known, the percentage of GRP blood has been included.  This information has been sourced from the official FN (German Equestrian Association) online database.

  • The Sport Name (as per the FN) of a pony/horses has been included in some cases if that animals name is the same as, or is very similar to another animal.

  • A number of Australian bred progeny have been recorded with an alternative name in brackets due to a different name registered with EA (Equestrian Australia) or another stud book.

  • A number in brackets following a name means that there is more than one animal with that name.

  • HLP scores or year of licensing have been included (sourced from FN) for current stallions. 

  • Where a Thoroughbred is recorded in the ASB (Australian Stud Book), the ASB number has been used for ease of further research.

  • Verb.Pr.St. (Verband Premium Mare), St.Pr.St. (State Premium Mare), El.St. (Elite Mare), Pr.H (Premium Stallion)  -  refer to the Licensing page to learn more about titles and stallion licensing and performance testing (HLP) scores.
