60 minutes "The Last Muster" in the Snowys

Greg Powell's Kalandan Foundation

Greg Powell

On Easter Sunday, 4th April 2010, 60 Minutes featured Greg Powell, the Horse Handler speaking about his Kalandan Foundation that helps save the brumbies from unneccessary forms of culling and teaches high-risk adolescents life skills by building partnerships with these wild horses.

The Brumby Camp Program is based on the philosophy that self-esteem is a function of achievement and recognition. Each youth faces the challenge of earning the trust and respect of not only a truly wild horse but also of their peers and instructors. This is done by learning and using the key ingredients of authentic horsemanship: kindness, patience, persistence, and consistency. These skills and lessons help build the solid foundations and social skills that the youth need to make a positive contribution to society.

Greg Powell has made a career out of building partnerships with horses.

Having worked with horses since he was a boy, Greg has gained a wealth of experience and knowledge in the art of building lasting relationships with horses. Greg has been influenced by the likes of Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman, Pat Parelli, John Lyons, Kel Jeffrey and others.

Greg Powell's work with wild horses in the Snowy Mountains high country has generated much interest in recent years and was profiled in the documentary film - "The Horse Handler".

The documentary “Wild Horses, Wild Kids” features Greg's work with Father Chris Riley, the founder of Youth On The Streets, and some young adults chosen by Father Riley to participate in the brumby project.

Together we need to support Greg Powell so he can continue his wonderful work with the brumbies and our youth.
