The Horsemanship Story

      Scott Bandy riding Knights Top That, an Australian Stock Horse stallion, is the five-time winner of The Man from Snowy River stockman's challenge at Corryong plus a host of other victories in both challenges and campdrafts.

Captured in the fast-paced action in the final of the Brumby Catch, the legendary combination draws to the shoulder of the rearing brumby at full-tilt for Bandy to position the halter 'at the critical moment' for a catch.

An Aussie Legend, Bandy is recognised for his all-round horsemanship and powerful efforts riding Knights Top That “…when his blood was fairly up”. They were finalists on the High Country stockman's challenge circuit for over ten years.

Scott Bandy was also an Australian Rodeo Champion in Saddle Bronc, retiring at age forty, echoing AB ‘Banjo’ Paterson’s poetic words: “No better horseman ever held the reins; For never horse could throw him while the saddle-girths would stand, (and like Clancy), He learnt to ride while droving on the plains.”

Originally from Barellan in the Riverina of NSW, the proud Bandy family tradition of horsemanship continues with his children - competing in stockman’s challenges, rodeo events and campdrafting.

Admirers can enjoy this Aussie legend in action - caught at the critical moment.
