From Caboolture, Queensland:  Professional Trainer


I am 28 years old and have been riding my whole life. 

I excelled in dressage and Pony Club as a child and as an adult I enjoy a range of disciplines from Campdrafting to Hacking.

I have been starting my own and family/ friends horses for almost ten years.

Roughly 4 years ago I took the plunge and quit my job in an office to follow my passion of training horses full time and never looked back.

VBA nugget

VBA Nugget is an approximately 14.1hh chestnut gelding with a star. He was caught as a three year old colt from Kosciuszko National Park in 2017. Nugget was running with a large group of bachelor Stallions. All of this group came to our sanctuary, including several you will see in the Australian Brumby Challenge: VBA Coolabah, VBA Ariat, VBA Levi, VBA Wrangler, VBA Brolga and VBA Aussie!


VBA Nugget's trainer in the McDowells Australian Brumby Challenge is Tamara Janus.
