Team Penning

What is Team Penning?

Team Penning (also called Team Yarding) evolved from the common job of separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring or transport. It is one of the fastest growing cattle sports in the US and is also growing quite well here in Australia.

Today, it is an exciting event that provides a team of three riders 2 minutes to cut out three same colour collared cattle from the herd and pen into a yard located at the opposite end of the arena, making sure no more than 5 cattle cross over the half way line at any time.

The herd can range from 18 head to 30 head of cattle and judges ensure that the colours are rotated fairly among the various teams. Team work is the key with all three riders required to work in harmony to cut out the correct cattle and drive them to the pen at the opposite end of the arena while keeping the wrong coloured cattle back. Sounds easy doesn’t it?
