“If you’re quiet enough in the Australian bush you might just
hear the cracking of a branch under hoof or see a ghost-like
silhouette among the gum trees. Elusive, mysterious, the
stuff of legend – this is Australia’s wild horse, the Brumby”
The Brumby holds a special place in the Australian psyche. Immortalised in films such as The Man from Snowy River and books like the Silver Brumby series, Brumbies epitomise the spirit of freedom and courage beloved by most Australians. Today, however, they face an uncertain future. Considered by some to be feral pests and increasingly marginalised in lands that have been their home for over a century, Brumbies need our support more than ever before if they are to be protected for the enjoyment of future generations.
Bringing together breathtaking photographs of Brumbies in the wild as well as often thought-provoking and entertaining stories from people privileged enough to have encountered or worked with them personally, Brumby celebrates the beauty, strength and indomitable spirit of these amazing animals.
