USTPA Team Penning

What is Team Penning?

1 of 2
In this competition there is a combination of three horses and riders that work together using their combined athleticism, horsemanship, and general “cowiness” to separate particular cows humanely and herd them into the penning area in under 60 seconds. This event displays the most skilled horses and riders that can find their specified cow, separate it from the herd and move it to the penning area without ever touching the animal.
