About Us

We are the Hughes family and we live in Cobar, NSW near the centre of the Australian outback. 

We are horse trainers and our aim is to educate and empower people using our calm and revolutionary training method to change the face of horse training, one horse at a time. 

I, Joe wanted to put into one system what I had learnt over my life of training horses. Our kind and gentle method is called 4BP, which stands for what we are doing which is saving horses, hence 4 Brumby Protection.

From 2016, we started rescuing brumbies that were being removed from Mount Kosciuszko National Park. These noble wild horses are showcased and become part of our 4BP Horse Clinics or the Brumbies 4 Recovery programs.

"I've only just started the program but how inspirational is Joe Hughes. What wonderful human beings he and his family, now extended family thanks to Facebook, are. I love seeing the horses run. They have often tried to outrun us in the ute in the outback even along roads. Magical creatures." - Another happy customer from the beta test in early March 2017
