Great Australian Working Horse Stories


About the Book

From Clydesdales and police horses, from trick riders to outback stockman, an authentic, funny, deeply moving collection of stories about horses and the amazing people who work with them.

Funny, familiar and deeply moving, these true stories of Australian working horses stretch over three generations and every part of our continent.

Teams of powerful, labouring Clydesdales, patient and spirited saddle horses, brave police mounts and talented Olympic competitors canter through its pages, their stories told first-hand by the owners who cared for and worked alongside them.

Follow country tracks in a hawker's wagon, visit floodlit arenas with thumping music where horses perform with quiet trust, and trudge mountains where brumbies run. Trick riders, talented trainers and outback stockmen share their secrets. Updated with many contemporary tales, this new edition is an unmissable treat for horse-lovers.
