ANOTHER successful Man From Snowy River Bush Festival at Corryong at the weekend saw John Mitchell take home the title of “The Man From Snowy River”, narrowly beating his brother David Mitchell by 15.5 points.

John Mitchell riding “Halls Chickenman” with a total of 624.5 points won for the second consecutive year, Emma O’Shea on “Hilite Dads Acres” taking home the ladies title for the fourth year in a row and Junior rider Johnny Ward on 511.6 points took home junior champion for the second time. 

Ms O’Shea went into the finals in equal first place overall, she chose to defend her title as ladies champion, although proving she could one day become the first ever Woman From Snowy River and taking home the open championship, an exciting thought for many spectators and riders.

The caravans and horse floats have now flooded home, however, the team behind one of Australia’s largest celebrations of bush culture and heritage are scheduling and arranging plans for a stellar 2018 festival.
