Welcome to 3 D Open Team Sorting.
We offer Ranch Sorting , Open Arena Sorting, and 3 Man 2 Gate in a three division format. In this format we have no need for ratings. You are allowed to ride with any rider combination regardless of experience level, age, or gender. The whole family can compete together and still have a chance to win cash and prizes.
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
1) Every team entered is put into the shuffle to make up the first go round. Once the round is completed, the teams are listed from best run to lowest run (most cows sorted in the least time to least cows sorted in slowest time). Teams that do not sort are out.
2) Now if you have a three division class divide that list by three. The top ten teams from each division go to the second go round to compete against those other nine teams in that division. The two go rounds are cumulative.
3) Places are paid out to the winners of each division.
For 2018, we will have 5 producers offering 11 total shows. You will be required to attend 5 shows during the year to be eligible for finals.
The regular shows will be held in Bogalusa, LA; Madden, MS; Poplarville, MS; Rayville, LA; Vancleve, Ms, and Amite, LA.
2017 YEAR END AWARDS
The top point earner in each class will receive a buckle. The top overall point earner (for all classes combined) will win a Todd Jeyes saddle. (Show producers are ineligible for awards.)
