Central Maine Team Penning

July 21 through July 22 , Charleston ME
Team penning was started in California in the 1950s and reached this area of the country in the 1990's. Riders of all ages from youth to "seniors" and of all levels of experience compete. You'll see riders competing on horses of all breeds and disciplines from the backyard family horse, to the trained, cow-bred, Quarter Horse! Team penning is a family sport, aimed at having fun with friends and your horse! The competition pits thirty cattle against three riders to determine if the riders can pull the right three cows from the herd, push them down the arena, and put them in the pen faster than any of the other teams. Riders are successful when the cattle are penned. If the allotted time expires, or too many cattle cross the foul line, the result is a "no time".
