The Western Heritage Cattle Sorting School is facilitated by Cinch-RSNC, and is for the ranch horse and rider team that wants to become more skilled in working cattle correctly.

Western Heritage sorting is for those who excel in slow and quiet cattle handling. Riders are limited to a trot or slower, and verbal noise directed to influence cattle is prohibited. Western Heritage Sorting follows other standard Cinch Ranch Sorting National Championship rules. Come out and try something new and different with your horses! No experience necessary for either your horse or you.
