Jackman has now begun preparing for Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Australian epic, which goes into production in February.
Jackman and his fellow castmates, including Nicole Kidman, will take part in a production workshop in Sydney in December.
“I have just been in doing fittings for hats and boots, so we are definitely on the go,” said Jackman.
He said he’d taken some horse riding tips from fellow actor Tom Burlinson, who starred in 1982′s The Man From Snowy River.
“I am starting my horse riding stuff,” said Jackman, who first learnt to ride a horse for Kate And Leopold, with Meg Ryan.
“I am going in for the long haul, mate. I don’t want any (stunt) doubles. I am fairly confident on a horse but this is droving, it’s another level.”
