Huh. Other then the skirt, it's identical to mine. Minus the price tag. LOL
I'll have to dig up a photo.

The way we do it is we have to take them out in order, starting with the number that's assigned to us, in a minute and a half. If anything comes out of order, it's a no time. If one of the sorted animals rejoins the herd, no time.

The team with the most clean runs wins, regardless of the number of cattle sorted. However, if there is a tie, the team with the higher number of cattle sorted wins. If there are two teams who had the same number of clean runs and total cattle sorted, they do a run-off.

We don't have any rules against loping into the herd, but usually that's not a good strategy, as it often results in a not-time. We do have a rule against handling the cattle "too rough," but it hasn't been an issue in our club, probably because club members use their own cattle.

Anyway, good job OP!

Boots, you work on cattle ranch? So jealous! I wish I could have a job that combined my love of horses and cattle. I work on a dairy farm and I love it! But my horse is just a hobby... I'm sure you'd clean up at sorting and penning competitions! They are so much fun and no one gets yelled at :) although your horse might still get crabby at you ;)
Cowchick 77- I had thought that Ranch sorting and pasture sorting differed only by the number of riders.. 2 for Ranch and 3 for Pasture. I'm not sure though. I thought the idea was to get the cow who's number is called and then to get as many as you can in consecutive number order before your time is up with both styles. When they do it at the rodeos do they have to get them into a pen? Is it team penning?- I thought they had to get 3 cows for that. I'll be going to a Team penning clinic in February hopefully so maybe I'll be able to figure out more differences then :)
WS Arabians- I would love to see a picture of your saddle! I had been saddle shopping FOREVER before I found a saddle in my price range that fit my horse. I wish I could've afforded a Billy Cook or a Circle Y but I am very happy with this Dakota and I know I'll have it for a loooong time (as long as I don't get any fatter, and I feel pretty good about what I paid for it).
LisaG- Great explaination! I was very confused about when you got no time and I had not realized that the only time the number of cattle sorted mattered was in a tie. Thank you for clarifying! :) Do you happen to know the difference between Pasture and Ranch Sorting?

It varied by rodeo, sometimes it was how many in consecutive order then fastest time to get your 3 out in order(not penning). And 4 person teams. Then at some rodeos we had the sorting, then the trailer loading event, it was basically the same idea then we had to load them in a stock trailer, shut the cut gate and load horses and close the back gate and run to the pickup...LOL

We just call it ranch sorting. Sometimes we do two-man teams, sometimes three.

The rules can vary between clubs...I'm up in Saskatchewan, Canada. Don't be afraid to double-check with your club about the rules.

We do the trailer loading, too, as part of a ranch rodeo. Great fun as long as your horse loads well and gets along with other horses in the trailer!

We also will herd a calf into a chute at the far end of the arena, with three-man teams. One person holds their horse in the chute, blocking the calf. Another person pulls the tag off the calf's back, and hands the tag to the third person, on horseback, who runs it across the line. This is a timed event.

You do have to be a little careful not to get your arm smashed when pulling the tag (always go over top the corral panel rather than through it). And some horses spook when they see the tag, so it's better to crumple it into a small ball and hand it off.

I love ranch rodeos they are so much fun!
We have done a version of the men's event of wild cow milking like that.
We had to rope a steer(head and heel or head and mug) then pull a sale tag off his belly..LOL

I love all of the different cattle events you guys mentioned! Loading the cattle onto the trailer with your horses? Sounds wicked difficult but so much fun! I wish we had ranch rodeos around here! They sound like a blast!
I'd like to think that I would excel at the wild cow milking... milking some of our first calf heifers feels like a rodeo event at times :)

Congrats on how well you did and glad you had fun. The sanctioned Ranch Sorting is two man teams in round pens. Three man sorting is typically done around here half arena with either a line to cross or a gateway (I am in Alberta). While at a club level the scoring and rules can vary in Ranch Sorting it is a 60 second time limit, most cattle sorted in consecutive order wins. In the event of ten head sorted fastest time on 10 wins. Then fastest on 9, fastest on 8 etc. If there is more than one round counting then it is cumulative but you must sort in all rounds.
Depending on what level you want to compete there are lots of things out there to do involving cattle.
