VBA Tokay is an approximately 14.2hh Taffy chestnut mare who was caught in late 2015 as a three year old from Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales. Tokay gave birth to VBA Cracker at our sanctuary and has been turned out since her foal was weaned, getting fatter and fatter!
VBA Tokay's trainer in the McDowells Australian Brumby Challenge Chris Connley.
I have been riding horses as long as I can remember.
My family are Mountain Cattlemen who have passed their love and respect for horses down to me from a young age.
I grew up in a small town in the Victorian High Country and horses have always been a big part of our life.
Growing up, we would use horses for everyday stockwork through to competitions on the weekends.
For the past four years, I have been operating my own breaking/ training business, Connley Breakers, where I’ve worked with a range of horses from Clydesdales, through to Arabs, ponies and TB’s
