Wild horse doco a prizewinner

AN AWARD-winning documentary set in the Blue Mountains about pioneering horsemen and preservation of the world heritage listed wilderness district, is screening at Richmond Regent Twin Theatre for a limited time.

The Man from Coxs River looks at brumbies from the Burragorang Valley and the difficult attempts by Megalong Valley horseman Luke Carlon to muster them for relocation and finding them new homes as threats of aerial culls hang over the wild horses’ heads.

Luke Carlon leads a brumby during the muster out of the Burragorang Valley wilderness.

The Man from Coxs River can be seen at the cinemas now and next week.
