Brumbies have recently been given legal protection in NSW, but not Victoria. The fight to protect them will continue.




A brumby is a wild horse. Early white arrivals bought horses and there have been wild populations in many parts of Australia ever since. The role of these horses in history, both during war and peace, has given them a special place in many Australian hearts.


But their rights are equal to any other introduced animals and are covered in our Introduced Animals policy.
