About Ranch Sorting

Ranch Sorting is a western-style equestrian sport that evolved from the common ranch work of separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring, or transport. Quick horses, determined riders, and a touch of luck are the main components of a winning team in this sport. Each team includes two riders. Cattle are numbered from 0-9, the announcer draws a number to begin with, and each team then has 60 seconds to sort the numbered cattle in numerical order- increasing in sequence from the starting number. Teamwork is the key with both riders working in harmony to sort out the correct cattle and drive them to a pen while keeping the wrong numbered cattle back.
