About: Witness the iconic cow and horse sport of Team Sorting at the Braidwood Showground this weekend. Drop in for a look at some of the region’s most competitive sorters and the local cowgirls and cowboys as they take each other on against the clock. Team Sorting is a great horse and cattle sport featuring fun fast-paced action in a friendly and competitive environment.
Working in teams of two riders, the aim is to sort 10 head of cattle in numeric sequence, in the shortest time, while keeping the cut cattle in the opposite end of the arena, and unwanted cattle from crossing the foul line. Prize money is usually paid for the highest scoring teams, based on the fastest qualifying times in each round. Bring your team or come individually to join up with other riders.
A special feature of the day is the junior’s events where you see children coming together in teams under adult supervision and just having a lot of fun.
Entries have closed for competitors but the event is open to spectators at no cost.
