BRUMBY STALLIONS AT STUD
The name ‘Brumby’ is generally thought to have originated from an early settler, James Brumby. Horses owned by him were left to free range and readily adapted to the harsh climate of the Australian bush. As there were vast areas of unfenced land the horses roamed freely and breeding was intermixed; Thoroughbred, Arabian, and working horse breeds, Draft and Clydesdale could be said to shape the bloodlines of the hardy Heritage Brumby.
Brumbies have been considered pests in the past and brutally slaughtered; however, there are now organisations who are promoting brumbies as practical and hardy mounts, capable of being trained for all horse sports.
