Event Description:

In an abundance of caution and in setting the example for social distancing in managing COVID-19, the decision has been made to postpone the Cinch Ranch Sorting Event scheduled for March 19-22.

It is the mission of RSNC to lead the industry in developing and improving the sport of Ranch Sorting through affordability and a fair rating system. Their goal is to preserve the heritage and integrity of the ranching lifestyle while providing a family-oriented, competitive riding experience at the grassroots level. These competitions are so popular because competing is affordable, with entry fees starting at $15 for a Beginner Ranch Hand.  Classes are jackpotted so contestants have an opportunity to WIN cash.  Even with thousands of dollars in cash and prizes at stake, everyone can ride for $50 or less, even at the National Finals.  So come out and watch the fun!
