Life in lockdown

March 30, 2020

We are making a short video diary of our days in lockdown. Check them out to keep up with what we are doing.

Brumby Farm in lock down

January 01, 2020

New Zealand Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, has locked the country down as of today for a minimum of four weeks. Only essential workers go to work, not us, and no non essential travel. Basically we all have to stay home and home we will stay!
We have it good, we’re healthy, we have what we need, we have space and we have horses!
It feels a bit wrong that the only way we can help people is to stay away from them but that’s the situation.
Our thanks and gratitude to the essential workers who are keeping the country going.
All the best everyone....,,

Equitana Auckland 2019

November 24, 2019

EQUITANA Auckland 2019 was a great opportunity for us to return as Educators with Cassidy and Maverick, as well as to have some fun in the Connexion Challenge which Russell and Maverick won. It was Cassidy's first time in an indoor venue and he coped really well with the atmosphere.

Equidays 2019 - It's a Wrap!

October 21, 2019

That is Equidays 2019 over for another year and we had a great time.  Russell did clinics each day, rode in the charity Jump for Cancer event, performed in the Saturday Night Show with Maverick and Maxwell and also rode as a Working Equitation demo rider on our Lusitano, Cassidy.  A great event yet again.

Come see us at Equidays 18th - 20th October

October 17, 2019

If you are heading to Equidays this year come and see us. We will have a booth in the foyer and Russell will be doing two demos a day, performing in the Saturday night show, Judging the Top Talent competition and being a demo rider to Sean Topsom's Working Equitation demo.  Don't worry, there's no dodgy wig and chest hair this year!!

Equidays success

October 20, 2018

We had a hectic, but successful Equidays 2018 in North and South Island this year.  Russell was in the Night Show with Maverick and Maxwell at both events as well as in the Professional Division of the Top Talent competition which he won with his three horse liberty act as you would never have seen him before!!  Well, they did say "dress up" for it.

Exciting Tournament planned at Brumby Farm

October 08, 2018

Breaking News!  We are planning a very special event at Brumby Farm in March next year to end the summer season. It will be a Horsemanship Tournament with $700 of cash prizes to be won. You can enter the individual events: "on-line challenges", "liberty challenges", "Freestyle Obstacle Challenges" and "Precision Riding Challenges". Each event will have its own winner and anyone who enters all four will be in the running to win the overall Tournament.  We will be running a practice day here at Brumby Farm the day before (Saturday 23rd March) so you can familiarise yourself with the environment and some of the challenges. Contact Ruth for more details.

Magnum's Big day

May 15, 2018

We have had a very skeptical little horse at Brumby Farm for starting. He is jumpy and nervous and very wary of humans and their intentions although he seems to really want to get along with us and learn. This short video shows Magnum's first ride outside the round pen.

Additional clinic added to UK tour

May 15, 2018

We have added another clinic to our UK schedule. This will be a Green Horse Clinic held in East Anglia and will be open to horses that have been started under saddle but have less than 100 hours riding (roughly). Check out the Overseas Schedule for details.
