Horse Riding Adventure with William Zillman

William Zillman is a country kid at heart who loves nothing more than riding horses. When the opportunity arose to head to the Snowy Mountains and spend time in the saddle in pursuit of Australia's famous wild horse, the brumby, he leapt at the chance.

Setting off from Sydney in a Range Rover Sport, William spent a comfortable six-hours heading for the Australian Alps.

The next morning William took off for Thredbo Valley Horse Riding, to spend the day with Australian stockman Nev Barrass. They took off into the high country, the Range Rover Sport making light work of the dirt tracks along the way, before saddling up to see if they could witness the brumbies in their natural environment. Over the course of the afternoon Nev explained the government's plan to reduce the number of animals in the wild, and William couldn't help but be impressed by the nation-building creatures as they freely roamed the mountains.

A successful ride in the books, William hit the road once more and headed back to Sydney.
