In the video footage beneath this text, you’ll see an emotional scene from “The Man from Snowy River”. It is based on a poem written by the famous Australian poet Banjo Paterson. Everything started when a prize-winning colt escaped and joined the wild horses in the mountains.
The owner got desperate, so he gathered the best horse riders and offered them a prize of 1000 pounds if they get back his horse! Each one of them was motivated to retrieve the young colt and out of nowhere, a young man showed up wanting to join the group.
He was on a little horse and the owner refused to let him participate, saying that this task is only for men. One of the experienced riders stood up for the young man and told everyone that this boy could help because he comes from the toughest parts of the mountains.
The riders started looking for the runaway colt and they found the wild horses. They didn’t want to scare the wild horses because if those horses start running they will reach the mountains where they can’t chase them anymore. One of them got to the front of the horses but they galloped away to the mountains.
Things got serious but the young rider decided to follow the wild horses. Nothing could stop him and every horseman was in shock. The man from Snowy River ran after the wild horses and brought them back. From that moment on he became famous because of its heroic achievement. Video below!
