Ranch Sorting and Team Penning clubs have a variety of classes from beginner to expert. It's also a wonderful opportunity for families to ride together! Check for clubs in your area and watch an event. Ask questions! Clubs welcome new riders and will offer help and advice.
The following video is of Open (experienced) riders and offer an exciting glimpse of penning! Novice classes are much slower and held at the end of the day when the cattle are tired and move slower. It's a lot of fun!
