VBA Taffy is a dark taffy chestnut gelding whose mother, VBA Shortcake was caught from Kosciuszko National Park in August 2017. Shortcake was one of a group of mares who ended up at saleyards and sold for slaughter until she was discovered by the committee of the Victorian Brumby Association, purchased and brought back to our sanctuary to foal in peace.
VBA Taffy's trainer in the McDowells Australian Brumby Challenge is Matilda De Haan.

Hi my name is Matilda. I have 2 horses and one cat. I love spending time with my horses and training my horses. When I am older I would love to be a horse trainer. My favourite food is spaghetti and my favourite colour is purple. In 2017, I did the Brumby Gentling Clinic and I got a beautiful baby Brumby. My personal philosophy is to be fair to the horse, to respect them and to make them feel safe.
