Life in the saddle - from wild brumbies of the high country to trusty stock horses of the outback and from drovers to dressage riders - a collection of heart-warming tales for horse-lovers.

Great Australian Horse Stories brings to life the exploits--funny, poignant and sometimes dramatic--of horses from all over the nation. Outback legends, loyal carthorses, spectacular high jumpers and trusty stock horses. Among them animals that have defied the odds to win--or simply to live.

Just as special are the people who make horses their lives: drovers and dressage riders, bush brumby runners, the famous horse handlers on film sets and rags-to-riches metropolitan trainers. Riders who have persevered through accident and adversity to stay in the saddle.

From the traditions of old-timers to new methods that challenge the way we think about horses, these stories capture the essence of that special bond between humans and horses. They will resonate with horse-lovers and anyone who enjoys a great Australian yarn.
