This was a Sorting, round robin style. Held Sunday May 3, 2015, at Double Standard Ranch in Santa Fe, NM. I had never been to a sorting event before. Teams are set up in 'round robin' style, which means each participant rides with all other participants. So, you are teamed up with a new person each time you ride. The pen is like a figure 8, or two round-pens together, with middle fencing taken out. Riders have 10 cows to 'sort', and have a flag to start them. They are timed, and the number of cows are counted, that they can successfully sort from the rest. There are a lot of rules I can't write down in this caption, but suffice it to say, this was really a lot of fun to watch and take photos of. You will see photos of just boots, spurs, spectators, children and dogs. I like to shoot everything I see that may be of interest to others. ENJOY!
NOTE: There are over 1200 photos in this gallery. I know, that is a lot of photos to sort through. My philosophy is to take photos of everyone, so no one goes without a photo of themselves. Dark photos can be lightened, and light ones can be darkened. Anyone who would like an adjusted photo can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos can also be adjusted as an option before purchasing.
