To guarantee the continued existence of the Australian Brumby by promoting the breed and ensuring the management of Brumby populations across Australia is always culturally sensitive, scientifically based and above all humane.
To create a future that includes the existence of sustainable wild populations of Brumbies that are not in conflict with their environment and achieve 100% re-homing rates for any managed populations.
The Hunter Valley Brumby Association was formed in 2009 to Protect and Promote Brumbies throughout the Hunter region. To provide refuge, rehabilitation and educational facilities through our HVBA Sanctuary and to give Brumby owners a structure in the Hunter Region.
The HVBA promotes Brumbies as a breed of choice, to improve popularity and showcase the breed to individuals and interested groups. In the past this was achieved by directly liaising with local show committees to include dedicated Brumby classes in their show programs. These days we are able to liase with the Australian Brumby Horse Register and regularly attend events and shows that showcase brumbies or include dedicated classes. We also promote the plight of brumbies via various media, including social media.
The HVBA works tirelessly to protect the three main Brumby populations in the Hunter by ensuring that Wild Horse Management Plans of the National Parks and Wildlife Service and State Forests, for the removal of Brumbies will be conducted humanely at all times.
The HVBA is also working hand in hand with other charities and interest groups through out Australia - with one key goal - for Government protection of Australia’s Wild Horses.
HVBA is fully endorsed by the Tax Office as an animal welfare charity. This means that all donations over $2.00 are fully tax deductible.
Your support is vital to help save more Brumbies, offer safe haven for those rescued and offer Brumbies for adoption in the Hunter Region.
