Hi Everyone,
I have come across the sport of Ranch Sorting and I am really interested in trying and competing in it with my family. I would like to know what you all know about it, if you compete, what equipment you use, what training you and your horse have, etc.

Thank You

idk anything about it, but i think Horse Illustrated did a article on it before. If you have back issues,see if you can find anything on it...it looks a lot like a trail class to be tho...

I never have but at one of my lessons barns they did sorting/roping/penning so I know a little bit. The horses were all VERY well trained to do their job, but half of it is instinct. The one I rode in lessons always wanted to take off after the cows if he saw one lol. All of them were QHs casue their breeding is right for the instinct, but then again one of my QHs is terrified of cows so idk lol. They used western saddle and bridle (duh), shorter braided reins (not sure if they were barrels or meant for ranch work), and breast collars. That's basically the extent of my knowledge on that stuff but hope it helps a little lol. I would definitely recommend getting a trainer for you and your horse who knows what they're doing in this area.

I don't know where to start looking for a clinic or anyone who can tell me about Ranch sorting. I would like to know more before I just join a group. I search for clinics but nothing near me. The competition season seems to have ended or will be starting in February.
