Australia's wild brumbies are slaughtered in their thousands every year. In this heart-wrenching read, Vicki, Amanda and Kelly Wilson travel to the Snowy Mountains to tame wild horses rescued from the annual Brumby cull. Once again the Wilson Sisters show that with kindness and patience horses that have never been touched can quickly become rewarding companions and even transform into winning show jumpers.
This latest adventure sees the Wilson Sisters return to New Zealand with their Snowy Brumbies, who adjust to life in the Far North of New Zealand alongside once wild Kaimanawa ponies, an American Mustang and a new crop of European-bred show jumpers.
