Kolovos had to choose between training a wild brumby and training a domesticated horse, the answer is easy.
“I’d definitely prefer to train a brumby,” says the 27-year-old, who runs GC Natural Horsemanship.
“Most domesticated horses take up to 10 weeks to train and a brumby from wild to willing takes up to 150 days. But the brumby is easier in that they are a blank slate, without any bad habits.
“Once a brumby trusts you, they are happy to try anything, whereas a regular horse can get pushy or disrespectful because they’ve learnt bad habits.
“We train a lot of ex-racehorses and they can have so many issues. It’s hard to get them relaxed.”
Georgia is currently dedicating 150 days to the Australian Brumby Challenge, one of 20 trainers transforming an untamed brumby to compete in four days at Equitana 2018.
