Team Penning Competition

Team penning is a competitive event in which a team of two riders sort cattle from one pen through an opening (the "gate") into another pen. The cattle used in team penning are each clearly identified by individual numbers (often by using large, numbered collars worn around the neck), and each team must sort one specific calf at a time, according to its number. When that calf is through the gate and into the adjoining pen the team then moves on to the next calf to sort, working in numerical order. The winning team is the team that sorts the most cattle from one pen to the other in the fastest amount of time.

At right, the team member in the orange shirt has just sorted a black calf through the gate and into the adjoining pen. He's now turning his horse back to the herd (which can't be seen in the photo) to sort out the next calf.

Team penning

The man in the yellow and blue shirt is the gate man. It is his job to allow only the correct calf through the gate, and to stop any wrong calves.
