David Mitchell









For the first time in 11 years the Challenge Parade and Mounted Presentations were not able to proceed due to terrible weather conditions, but over the weekend all Challenge Events were completed, with competitors demonstrating their special skills and fortitude in true stockman style.


A magnificent $10,000 first prize and the Marsh Carney trophy saddle were among the awards presented to David Mitchell by Major Sponsor David Paradice, Naming Sponsor David Bettington and Upper Hunter Shire Councillor Wayne Bedggood
