This August will see competitors from across the state compete in the third event of the 2017 Dubbo Ranch Sorting Buck and Bridle series

The Wazz-A-Cow Buckle and Bridle will be held from Saturday, August 19 to Sunday, August 20.

The first event of 2017 was held in February and when the Western Magazine spoke to RSD president David Egan he said at the time that it was a “huge success” and a “really good weekend.”

The inaugural Dubbo Ranch Sorting began in 2016 to spectacular reviews, so much so that DRS organisers decided to add a fourth event in the 2017 series.

Competitors and spectators from previous events have come from as far as Sydney, Tamworth, the Hunter Valley and western NSW.

The US Western-style equestrian sport caters for riders of all abilities from beginner to the seasoned and expert horse person. It sees riders race against the clock as they separate cattle into pens.

This is a family friendly event so everyone is welcome to attend. The final event will be held in October and will include a clinic.

It is being held at the Dubbo Showgrounds.
