Why does the video stop/start all the time?
This is caused by a slow internet connection. The video plays at a faster rate than the speed of the download to your computer. The only solution is to start the video and wait for the video to fully download. Once it has downloaded you can then play the video again (without the stop/start problem) by clicking on the play button on the popup (do not click on any other part of the page).

Stockman's Challenge
The Stockman’s Challenge was an event to watch as Ben demonstrated his stockman skills and navigated his way around the obstacle course, with his horse and kelpie 'Zapp'. It was the event definitely not to miss.

It’s a great skill of team work between person, horse and kelpie. This year the event was a draw for first, won by Ian James working Akubra Luke purchased at the 2008 Casterton Working Dog Auction and Dennis Neal working Pomanda Rod bred by Nancy Withers of Casterton (each scored 610 points)., third was JJosie Jackson, Horse Hippy with her dog Sherwood Winnie (Score 582 points), with Lucy Sellars, Horse Wallaroo Asher with her dog Dude fourth (Score 553 points).
