Our aim is to find dedicated forever homes for our Brumbies. We carefully assess each and every one and do our best to match them with the right owner. Please be guided by our advice as we work with them from the day they arrive at our Sanctuary and get to know each Brumbies unique personality. We pride ourselves on providing professional care and handling of all of our Brumbies, as outlined below. All new owners must agree to the adoption terms and conditions and pay the full adoption fee before they will be allowed to take their Brumby home. The adoption fee for HVBA Brumbies is $1500 regardless of colour, age, height or personality as these things do not affect their value in our eyes. They are priced based on level of training and are all sold with the same very high standard of ground work skills (Adoption fees for saddle started Brumbies may differ). The HVBA is a not for profit organisation and the adoption fee does not come close to covering the cost to us of saving your Brumby, but it does go directly towards helping us give more Brumby’s the second chance at life they all deserve.
Brumbies available for adoption come:
* certified as a legally, passively captured Brumby - so you know you are getting a genuine Brumby!
* microchipped and registered with the Australian Animal Registry and the Australian Brumby Horse Register.
* regularly farrier trimmed and wormed, with all Brumbies over 2 years of age also receiving dental care.
* gelded if colts or stallions, and no mares or fillies are adopted in foal or with foals at foot.
* with full medical reports. Health issues are rare, and will ALWAYS be disclosed during your initial enquiry.
* fully ground worked including safely tie up, worked with different objects for de-sensitiation (cars, mowers, cats, dogs, chooks, ropes, tarps etc), led off the property, float loaded and taken for their first drive - approximately 10 months of training.
* with full documents, personalised reports of each individual Brumby, care reports and a USB with complete picture diary from the time your Brumby arrived!
The HVBA team cares deeply for our Brumbies and for this reason are willing to offer a lot of after sale assistance to our new owners if required.
Below are the Brumbies currently in our care that have either completed or are very close to completing their training and are ready to begin the process of finding their forever homes. There are detailed descriptions of these Brumbies, including photographs, to help you decide if one of these Brumbies would be right for you or your family. If you are interested in adopting one of these Brumbies please contact us for more details and to arrange a time to visit your preferred Brumby. Please Note – the HVBA does NOT sell sight unseen or on first inspection. We believe in developing the beginnings of a bond between Brumby and owner and this cannot be achieved at the first visit. The Brumbies that have completed their training are able to be adopted as soon as the right owner comes along and those still in training can be placed on our “Path to Adoption” program.
Please remember the adoption contract is final and the Brumby becomes the sole property of the owner once signed off. OCcasionally Brumbies may be placed on Boomerang Contracts, click here for more information. We welcome inquiries via email, phone and through thecontact page of this site, but please ensure you have read the terms and conditions prior enquiring about adoptions. We are constantly having new arrivals and will be listing them as they become available - watch this space!

HVBA Checker - Adoption Fee $4,500
Checker is a 5.5 year old, approximately 14.3hh gelding captured from Oxley Wild Rivers National Park in March 2015. He is a stunning Piebald Pinto making him eligible for duel registration, and his excellent conformation and symmetrical markings would certainly make him a favourite in the show ring. Checker has recently been saddle started with Adam Sutton Allround Horsemanship and has come a really long way in a short time, now going out on beautiful trail rides with one of the trainers and when our President has had a ride she found she could completely trust him because he was so sensible. Checker will form a strong bond with his owner and for this reason will be offered on a boomerang contract only.Click here for more information on Boomerang contracts. Checker requires an experienced owner that will give him the confidence to shine. See below for pictures and a short video of Checker under saddle.
