Valley Team Penning was formed after a group of riders found there was a need for a club in the Lower Hunter/Newcastle area. The first event was held at Gresford in 2011 and was a massive success. Since then the club has grown with over 300 members aged from five up to 75 years young.

The event is run over two days with Team Penning on Saturday and Arena Sorting on Sunday. The aim is to provide a safe environment for all members and their families.

It is a western equestrian sport that has evolved from farm and station work separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring, or transport. It is a fast-paced event that gives teams of three riders on horseback from 60 to 90 seconds to separate three specifically identified cattle from a mob and put them into a pen at the opposite end of the arena.
