Northern Territory - Wild About Hooves - DESERT BRUMBY ADVENTURE TOUR

For those keen to observe Australian brumbies in their natural habitats in outback Northern Territory then this trip is a must. There is so much to be learned from observation of the wild horses and their relevance to our domestic equines. Living examples will cement all your beliefs that horses don’t need metal shoes. 
This is a rare chance to study our wild horses and gain understanding of their hardiness especially their tough sound hooves. 
We will camp under the stars and enjoy meals in the harsh yet spectacular environment that causes the production of these incredible hooves.
