When Jim Ryan arrives at the station (ranch) of John Conroy, looking for work as a station hand, he and Kate (the daughter of John Conroy) fall in love at first sight. Jim incurs the wrath of John Conroy, and when the colt from old 'Regret' jumps the fence and joins the wild bush horses, John Conroy mistakenly thinks that Jim is to blame for what happened and he orders Jim to leave the property. The colt is worth a thousand pounds and John Conroy offers a reward to anyone who can bring the valued colt home again. All the crack riders from the stations near and far arrive at the homestead to take part in the chase, but, it is Jim Ryan who is successful in bringing the wild bush horses back to the property. John Conroy is delighted to get the colt back again, and all of his objections to Jim are swept aside. All ends happily, with Jim Ryan's courageous and legendary ride being celebrated by a concert and dance, and by a superb equestrian pageant. Written by

Created by the same people who created 'The Man From Snowy River' segment of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony. Steve Jefferys, the rider who opened the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, and his horse Ammo, recreated their historical appearance. See more »
I had the really good opportunity to dance in this production twice ti was so fun and it was a great experience for me at such a young age in life. I got to watch the show during the final dress rehearsal and I was amazed that I am dancing in such a big production which my dance group did so well that we made it to DVD/Video(Brisbane got chosen for that).
The production/movie is a really good movie to get out if your into some humor and some outback fun it is full of Bush Dancers, Horse Riders, Musicians and talented actors I will definitely recommend to watch this movie after I spent a lot of time working on it and making it look really good.
