Brumbies 4 Recovery
- “Hundreds of brumbies were being slaughtered,” he said. “I knew I could put value into those brumbies, so we set off in the truck and picked them all up.” Joe Hughes
4BP Horses Australia
Brumbies are an idyllic part of Australian Heritage, they are our wild horses and represent a story of hardship, mateship and the building of a great nation. These horses are under threat and our mission at 4BP Horses is to save them and reconnect people to these special animals.
Not only do we save horses, we save people too. We have developed a unique and gentle horse training method that embraces the connection between human and horse. We take a wild horse and create a strong bond that embodies respect and trust in as little as three hours.
The equine therapy component of what we do is impossible to excuse and what we have learnt is that our method translates not only from equine to human interactions, but from human to human interactions too.
“Where horse whisperers are created.” Joe Hughes
The 4BP way is a kind and effective training method that teaches people how to communicate with horses to achieve trust and mutual respect. The 4BP training method is simple so that even a relatively inexperienced horse people can train a horse safely, using repetition and consistency to produce positive results. We teach how to train from the heart and work together so that the horse naturally learns what it is we expect, which produces an equine partner with a strong bond.
Welcome to our way, the 4BP Way…
4BP Training DVD
"Horses behave similarly to humans, they can have anxiety, trauma, stresses and our method helps the trainer to address those issues in the horse. But often we find this training was also helping participants address those issues within themselves.
We teach people that they can only train a horse by being a better person. In the process, you also learn anger management, conflict resolution and create empathy for one another". - JOE HUGHES

Rosemary came in from Florida , USA for a 5 day full immersion clinic. Her inspiration to come to Australia came from watching these very feedback videos.

I spent 5 days at 4BP™ & I have to say it was the best 5 days I’ve ever had out of the 20 yrs I’ve spent working in the horse industry. Joe & Lauren work extremely hard with little reward apart from the joy & love of working with these beautiful brumbys, & the pride of seeing them going to their new loving homes at the end.
