📣📣📣 Mark Buttsworth aboard Branchvale Metal Alloy has taken out a nail biting final Prydes EasiFeed Challenge final tonight in the AELEC main arena.

Hearing from the rider Mark, “Great event, I’d like to thank Rodger for believing in me and buying this horse, he is very special”
🥇 1st place and $8000 first prizemoney as well as the beautiful new Navaho Trailer made for one very ecstatic owner in Rodger Grant. “Buttsy talked me into this horse a few years ago and he won at Cloncurry, a lot of Futurites as well and he has a big future, thank you to Nutrien, and good on you boys”

Nutrien would like to congratulate the winners, placegetters, and connections and take the opportunity to thank major long-time sponsors @prydeseasifeed and Navaho Trailers for their ongoing support of this event.
