Waiting their turn

Competitors and livestock wait their turn at Cattle Penning in the North Thompson Agriplex

With some 700 teams of three riders each competing in the BC Team Cattle Penning Double Header the weekend of Mar. 23, 24 at the North Thompson Agriplex, both riders, horses and cattle experienced some ‘down time’ between their goes in the arena.
