2017 Dalgety Team Penning, Show Shear & Saddleup Sunday

23rd & 24th September 2017

A fun filled weekend is awaiting you again this year at Dalgety showground on September 23rd & 24th of September when the Dalgety Show Society will host the 8th year of Team Penning, starting from 8am on Saturday. This will be followed by the Saddle-Up Sunday the next day on the 24th of September.

Team Penning

The Dalgety Team Penning entries open on the 11th August 2017. There is a limit of 30 teams of 4 for this event, so first in best dressed, so get into your stirrups and get those entries in. Entry costs are Open $55, Under 16s $25, Under 8s or led kids $5.  Entries will close on the 8th September unless filled prior. Camping available.

Team Penning is a fun team's sport consisting of 4 people per team, with only 3 of the team being in the pen at one time. Each team has ninety seconds to cut 3 head of cattle with the same coloured collars from the mob of 21. It is a great family sport with three sections catering for sub-junior (10 and under), junior (9 - and under 17 years) and open. Juniors can choose to compete in either a junior or open team; however they cannot compete in both sections. You can enter your team of four, or if you cannot find 3 others, enter yourself. But even if you don't participate it is a great event to watch where rider and horse vs the cunning cattle, as it is not always the seasoned riders that come away with a win.

Team Penning 2016 Wrap Up

It was an action packed weekend at Dalgety with the running of the 7th annual Team Penning, Saddle Up Sunday and Stockman’s Time Trial Challenge weekend hosted by the Dalgety Show Society.

Riders and horses came from all over NSW and some interstate visitors with all remarking what a fantastic weekend was had and how wonderfully organised the event was with 120 riders entered in the Opens, 24 in our juniors and our 8 sub juniors.

The winners in the Open Team Penning event held under glorious sunny Saturday skies were Sammi Rudd, Jane Fitzgerald & Will Fitzgerald whilst Breanna Bassett, Lockie Bassett & Jaimie Russell took out the Junior Team Penning (8yrs – under 16yrs).

In the 2yrs to 7yrs group we had 8 competitors all doing a great job getting those cattle into the yard with some of them showing steely determination.

Sunday the pace slowed somewhat with riders again taking to the showground for the Saddle Up Sunday and Stockman’s Time Trial Challenge with 89 riders aged 2yrs and up displaying fine horseman skills.

Open winner was local rider Brett Aitchison with Meg Williams coming in second.

Under 16’s was won by Maddy Kirshner with Lauren Blacka taking out the Under 13’s and Under 8’s being taken out by Jane Miners.

In the Assisted class Ryan Filtness came away with the ribbon. 

Event organiser Jo Miners thanked all for coming along and competing and to those that volunteered their time to make the weekend a smashing success and a big thank you to all over our sponsors, Cooma Rural, Mitre 10 Jindabyne, O’Ryan  Mechanical,  Bush Basics,  Hiscocks Queanbeyan , Main Street Cooma,  Office Play,  Cooma Saddlery, Cooma Pet Shop,  Hip Pocket Work Wear and Snowy Vets
