Colour ranges can be bay, brown, black, chestnut, grey, red, blue roan and dun. White markings on the head and legs are acceptable. Broken coloured brumbies (i.e. pinto) are not acceptable.
There is variation in brumbies in that some are slightly finer than others, these being of riding type. The sturdier type of sound, clean legs could lend themselves to both riding and harness type. Both types of brumby are acceptable
