Summary

Summary

This family drama recounts the tale of a legendary silver stallion living deep in the most remote mountain ranges of Australia. Based on a novel by Elyne Mitchell, the film dramatizes many of the horse's personal experiences living in the high, mountainous regions of the state of Victoria. In the story, a wild silver stallion colt (Thowra quickly grows to adulthood and must replace his father as the leader of a herd of horses. Before assuming leadership duties, however, Thowra must find and defeat the stallion responsible for killing his sire. The beautiful and intelligent horse is desired by a ruthless mountain man, who is unable to capture it on his own and devises crafty and underhanded methods to do so. The Silver Stallion was originally titled The Silver Brumby in its native Australia; 'brumby' is Aussie for 'wild horse.' ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
