The Silver Brumby (also known as The Silver Stallion or The Silver Stallion: King of the Wild Brumbies in overseas markets such as the United States) is a 1993 Australian drama-family film, directed by John Tatoulis, and starring actors Caroline Goodall, Russell Crowe and Amiel Daemion. It was based on the Silver Brumby series of novels by Elyne Mitchell.


A mother tells her daughter a fable about the prince of the brumbies- brumby being a term for the feral horses of Australia- who must find his place amongst his kind, while avoiding The Man who always seems to be hunting him.

The plot shifts to the birth of the titular character. Bel Bel, a wild palomino mare, gives birth to a blonde colt during a nighttime thunderstorm. She names the newborn foal Thowra, after the strong winds that blew that night. His sire, a chestnut stallion named Yarraman, is the leader of their herd.

The herd is under constant threat from being captured by men. One man becomes particularly obsessed with capturing Thowra, who is now a young stallion.[2]

John Tatoulis says he was attracted to the project because of the spirituality of the Silver Brumby books.[3] The film was shot in the high country of Victoria around Dinner Plain, Mount Hotham, Swindler's Creek and the Blue Ribbon ski area.[4] A hut now known as the Silver Brumby Hut was built as a set prop at Mount Hotham and is now a tourist attraction.[5]
