Australian Brumby Challenge ©

Jenny grew up in a horse training family, but learnt early that she wanted to find kinder ways of training horses than what she saw around her.

She has worked hard to continue her 'horse education', and by 2012 found herself as the proud owner of three Brumbies, a mare, her newborn foal and her yearling gelding.


Jenny's passion for wild horses led her to enter the very first Australian Brumby Challenge in 2014, which partnered her with VBA Red Baron. She simply couldn't part with Baron at the end of the event and he is still her baby today.


Jenny is now a proud committee member of the Victorian Brumby Association, where she gets to actively help our wild ones in many ways.


The drawback is that as a committee member, she cannot compete in committee sanctioned events, such as the ABC. When VBA Aussies initial trainer withdrew, Jenny was delighted to step in and take Aussie on as a project.


Jenny will continue through the ABC with VBA Aussie and enter him in all finals classes at Equitana, however will not be eligible to place or win. She is just happy to be part of Aussies journey and help him find his forever home.
