Horse Pictures From Australia

Australian FlagHorses were first brought to Australia in the late 18th century during their pioneer days. The introduction of camels into the Australian lifestyle created a decreased demand for horses and many were left to go feral.

These feral horses became what are known as Brumbies, the wild horses of Australia.

    Love Equinest and love seeing something about Australia and our horses but thought I’d let you know (if someone else hasn’t already) that our wild horses are called Brumbies not Brambies

    Hi Cheval Noir,

    You’d think I’d seen The Man From Snowy River enough times to make sure I had that right! Thanks for the correction, it has been fixed. :)

    The Waler was used in the first wold war its name came from the state it came from NSW. Most of them were shot and didn’t return after the war :(. So realy we don’t have “our” horse.

    They have tried to selectively breed walers back using the main bloodlines from the horses they would have had then…..the aussie stock horse is similar to the waler though
