Some people do look down on Mustangs/wild horses in North America... Just like a lot of people look down on mares. It's silly, but true.

I have always wanted a mustang, and would be totally tickled pink to be able to work with a brumby!

I wish you all the best in working with and riding your new lease horse! If it all works out you'll have to post pictures!

I hope this lease works out for you!

Also why are you upset? Don't even let her comment get to you. Just pretend it doesn't matter and it shan't my friend! A good horse is a good horse!

I have a BLM Mustang and he is the BEST horse I have ever ridden. Hands down! Nobody that knows him disses him. He is as well behaved and well trained as any purebred anything. I am never outclassed on my Mustang no matter what company I am in (and some of my friends have VERY nice horses).

May your Brumby be the same! A good-will ambassador for his breed wherever he goes.

The reason a lot of people in Australia dislike Brumbies is because they're considered "ferals" and "pests" because they break down farmer's fences to eat the crops.

Most people think the best option is to shoot them all! Thankfully there are some smaller groups who capture them, gentle them and find loving homes for them.

OP, I'm insanely jealous of your opportunity and I think Brumbies are lovely. They're usually very hardy, sturdy, solid little horses that are very versatile. Just ignore your "friend" and you'll be able to prove her wrong! ;)

My only concern is your statement that "he can get pushy, just like any horse." Sounds like he needs a serious lesson in manners. No horse should be even a little bit pushy. Push equals rude and rude behaviors are not tolerated. Period. I do not tolerate pushy rude behaviors from my 4yo and he knows it.

Sorry, just seen people get hurt because they said exactly what you did and let their horse get away with being pushy, then it escalated.

Anyway, other than that, he sounds amazing. Like Sky said, don't even pay attention to the dissers. Plenty of people said "You have a draft cross?" to me when I got Aires like it was some horrible thing. Now I just laugh at them because my horse is calmer and better behaved than their QHs.
