WATPA are extremely fortunate to have had our NSW fellow Ranch Sorters come and run a couple of clinics and competitions at our event 31/1-2/2/20 it was a fantastic weekend with all attendees having a load of fun and learning the joy of ranch sorting. We thank these beautiful people for coming across the country and sharing their knowledge and skills.



The West Australian Team Penners Association Inc (WATPA) promotes the sport of Team Penning and Ranch Sorting which encourages the mixing of all age groups, abilities and skill levels within a fun, social, yet competitive atmosphere.  WATPA was born in West Australia in August 2009 and continues to grow with the addition of Ranch Sorting as an event in 2018. Our emphasis is family fun, playing with our horses and cattle in a controlled environment. This would have to be the cheapest horse sport the whole family can enjoy.

We run an event every other month at Chittering – Valley Views Equestrian and try to hold a club day on the alternate month. Everyone is welcome – it’s a great spectator sport and watching is free. Our membership season runs from the 1st December through to the 30th November. So get your membership in and start having some fun!

Peel Ranch Sorting & Penning run alternate months at Ravenswood Arena, we will be promoting their events aswell, please check their FB page and webpage: Peel Ranch Sorting & Penning
