Get ready for the next round of Dalgety team penning

It's a horse event that attracts riders from all across the state, from novice through to experienced horsemen and women. Now in its fourth year the annual Dalgety Team Penning event is growing every year. It will be held on Saturday and Sunday, September 28 and 29.

Entries secretary Clare Mansell encourages all potential competitors to save the date. "With a top prize of over $1000, Team Penning at Dalgety attracts a huge interest every year. Saturday September 28 will see a full day of team penning events. Those wanting to compete should get their entries in early".

Saddle Up Sunday will follow on from the team penning. Entries for this family event will be taken on the day. A Show Shear competition will also take place over the weekend.

With the iconic Snowy River as its backdrop, the Dalgety Showground provides the perfect setting for this high country event that sees teams of riders' pen cattle for cash prizes.

Entries open Saturday August 31. Check next week's paper for all entry details and categories. Contact Clare Mansell on 02 6456 5358 or email
