Important dates:

To see these Brumbies transform​ from wild to wonderful in 150 days is just amazing. Not only is this a fantastic event for the trainers involved to showcase their horsemanship skills but it provides a chance for these wild horses to live happy and secure lives. The VBA is dedicated to promoting humane management of Australia's wild horses and re-homing is a hugely important aspect of this management, and to re-home as many horses as we can we need the public to see the value in our Brumbies that we do!
