Ross Dowling talks Rodeo

Rural Exchange 21/10/2017

Affectionately known as 'Rossy D', our character of the country this week is a real Kiwi Cowboy! Ross Dowling proudly defends the sport as an integral part of life in the country and the great work they do to stick to the animal welfare code in New Zealand.

Ross has ridden in front of crowds of 40,000 in the US, but this weekend it's the highlight of the calendar for rodeo - opening the season in Canterbury at Winchester & Methven.
