Hannah Pikkat

From Bayview, New South Wales: Non-Professional Trainer


I grew up in Sydneys Northern Beaches, always surrounded by horses since I was 4 weeks old.

I studied at Brigidine College and am currently studying a Bachelor of Applied Entrepreneurship online through Canberra University.

At 15 years old, I started my business Adorable Pony Parties and am now expanding to Adorable Therapy Horses.

For the last two years, I have been a ambassador for Horsewyse Magazine and run a successful social media site @1itscrunchtime1.

VBA aussie

VBA Aussie is an approximately 14hh flaxen chestnut gelding who was caught as a three year old in 2017 from the Kosciuszko National Park in New South Wales. Aussie was running with a big bachelor group of stallions including several you will see in the Australian Brumby Challenge: VBA Ariat, VBA Nugget, VBA Wrangler, VBA Coolabah, VBA Brolga and VBA Levi!


VBA Aussie's trainer in the McDowells Australian Brumby Challenge is Hannah Pikkat.
