WELCOME TO THE MCDOWELL'S AUSTRALIAN BRUMBY CHALLENGE 2020!
Commencing with Brumby pick up on Sunday 21 st of June 2020.
Finals to be held at EQUITANA Melbourne, 19 th to the 22 nd November 2020.
The only event of its kind in Australia, partnered with McDowell's Herbals and EQUITANA
Melbourne 2020 to bring a bigger and better event!
The McDowell's Australian Brumby Challenge takes totally wild Brumbies, passively trapped as
part of an ongoing management program, from the High Country of Victoria and Southern New
South Wales. These tough survivors are partnered with professional and non professional horse
trainers for 150 days. In the Ridden Challenge, Brumbies aged four and older are saddle trained.
Our Champions for 2020 will be announced after the Freestyle class and all Brumbies who are not
being retained by their trainers will then be auctioned to approved and registered bidders on the
final day of EQUITANA – this is your chance to learn about and maybe even take home a special
part of our Australian Heritage!
