How did they film Jim Craig's steep ride down that hill in "Man From Snowy River"? Who was the stunt rider that rode that?
Tom Burlinson, who played Jim Craig, performed all his own horse-riding stunts in The Man from Snowy River. He was not an experienced horse rider before making this movie. When he took Denny over the cliff to go after the brumbies, it was a one-take shot at full gallop down the cliff face.
