Open Team Penning
September 18 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm EDT
Team penning is a western equestrian sport that evolved from the common ranch work of separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring, or transport.
Today it is a fast-paced event that gives a team of three riders on horseback from 60 to 90 seconds to separate three specifically identified cattle from a herd of 15, and put them into a 20′ x 24′ pen through a 10′ opening, at the opposite end of the arena
Open Team Penning is open to everyone! Team Penning is a fun event for all ages of riders and all abilities of riding levels. Team sign-up takes place right before the event and everyone picks their own teams. If you don’t have a team and want to try, there are folks who will team up with you.
The cost is for members $15 per person per team and for non-members $18 per person per team. Each team of three riders gets three goes or turns. There will be food will be available for purchase. Free admission for spectators.
