The Hunter Valley Brumby Association is dedicated to the promotion, protection, rescue and rehoming of Brumbies that are passively trapped by NPWS to save them from slaughter. The HVBA also advocates on their behalf to ensure Brumbies are treated humanely at all times and we provide education and promotion to the public to raise awareness of the major problems our wild horses face by our Government. Our Hunter Valley Brumby Sanctuary provides refuge for our Brumbies while in care, especially mares that are generally trapped while pregnant and also for some Brumbies that cannot be rehomed. But for those that can be rehomed, the HVBA finds those Brumbies wonderful forever homes where they are adored by their new families. Despite our Brumbies coming from Government land, eg Kosciuszko National Park, we do not receive any Government funding and rely solely on donations.
