I was chatting with another photographer on Saturday morning. He had his list of riders out and had put an asterisk beside those he was watching. I told him that my money was on either Bronson Macklinshaw or David Mitchell. Neither rider had rated on this other fellows sheet and he told me I was only a wedding photographer and had no idea. I wish I had put $50.00 on it because in the final wash up both Bronson and David made it into the top 10 and Bronson went on to win the Kosciusko Buckjump and Patersons Brumby Catch and earned the title of “The Man from Snowy River” for 2015.
Bronson, a Horse Breaker from NSW, won the NCHA Stockmans Challenge in 2012 and Battle of the Bidgee in 2014. He placed in the top 10 of King of the Ranges in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 and placed in the top 10 of the Man from Snowy River Challenge in 2014.
There are a series of photos of Bronson in various Challenge events here.
Congratulations Bronson and Smokey……we hope to see you again next year.
