John Mitchell wins Man From Snowy River Challenge 3rd consecutive year

Huge congratulations to John Mitchell & Halls Chickenman winner of the 2018 Man From Snowy River Challenge three years in a row.

The event was tightly contested but John secured the win in the final event, the bronc ride, riding for his life!

This is the first time Select Sires has covered the challenge, but will certainly become an annual pilgrimage to Corryong.  Brilliant, exciting event!

Enjoy some of John’s rounds in the competition:
