Flinders greentree

Aged 14, from Maldon, Victoria:  Non-Professional Trainer


I am at Highview College in year 9.

My skills are in metalwork and woodwork and my understanding of the natural world.

My hobbies are breeding heritage Chickens and mountain biking.

I have been learning horsemanship for three years and have worked with two ponies as my projects, both unstarted and with fear and distrust of humans.

This year, I took part in the Stripling Challenge at the Man From Snowy River Festival. 

VBA brandy

VBA Brandy is an approximately 13.2hh liver chestnut mare who was caught as a four year old in 2016 from the Kosciuszko National Park. Brandy had a foal after her arrival with us, but he was sadly lost in floods. Brandy stayed with the mares she was caught with afterwards and was a loving aunty to al the foals. 


VBA Brandy's trainer in the McDowells Australian Brumby Challenge is Flinders Greentree.
