A fun filled weekend is awaiting you again this year at Dalgety showground on September 26th & 27th Saturday when the Dalgety Show Society will host the 6th year of Team Penning and Show Shear, starting from 8am. This will be followed by the Saddle-Up Sunday and StockmenÕs Time Trial the next day on the 27th.
The Dalgety Team Penning entries open on the 31st August. There is a limit of 30 teams for this event, so first in best dressed, so get into your stirrups and get those entries in. Entry costs are Open $55, Junior $25, Sub-Junior $5 and camping is 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.

This eventful weekend also hosts a great local show shear competition. The competition involves four sections of Novice, Intermediate, Senior and Opens. This wonderful event showcases the excellent skills and talent shearers have but it also allows them to gain feedback from renowned industry judges. It also displays the wonderful natural fibre of wool and how important the wool industry is to us all both locally, nationally and internationally.

If you are interested in participating in events such as flag races, barrel races, bending and lots of others, while catering for all riding abilities, then this day is for you! The Stockmen's Time Trial is designed to test both horse and riders ability whilst going through a series of events demonstrating a stockmen's day on a horse.
