This event will consist of a 2 day riding clinic and then a ranch sorting event on the third day. Ranch Sorting is a great sport which derives from the cowboys using their horses to separate cattle for medical reasons or to move them to another pasture. The teams of two have to sort cattle in a particular order from one pen to an adjacent pen. Some expert riders can separate 10 cattle in under 60 seconds making it an exciting event to watch. Please help us give these veterans a once in a lifetime cowboy experience they will never forget!
