Welcome to hp Cattle & Horses of Montrose, CO.  We host 1, 2 and 3 man ranch sortings throughout the year at our facility.  Our events are fun for all levels of riders with quality cattle and a fun, family atmosphere.  We also will be hosting the 4th Annual 3 Man/2 Gate sorting held in conjunction with the Mountain States Ranch Rodeo Finals at the Montrose Event Center on September 24 & 25, 2021.

 

Heidi also does regular sorting practices, private lessons, and sells quality Ranch Sorting horses with references available.   Heidi also has two horses consigned to the Western Colorado Equine Horse Sale this April @ the Montrose Event Center. Horse boarding is also available whether you need a place for a few nights or a few years.  Our arena is good to ride in almost every day of the year.  Our sorting pens are good the majority of the year as well.  We have plenty of trailer parking room and living quarters hook-ups are available as well as horse stall rentals.

We hope to kick off the 2021 Summer Buckle Series in April depending upon the weather.

Sorting Q & A

We run 2-3 different classes at our sortings so everyone competes against competitors with similar abilities.  We use a 1 through a 6 number system with most new sorters being rated a 1 or a 2.  Once the series starts we will not raise anyone’s rating until the following season.  Individuals are rated on their riding ability, ability to read a cow, horse’s ability, etc.  All classes have a 60 second clock including the one man Sort.  We will again run a 4 ride limit in each class at most events.  We will again run pick & draw in which if you pick a team you are automatically entered to draw a team.   We will again rotate the schedule to have sorts on Saturday and Sunday in an attempt to let everyone participate.  The Mountain States Ranch Rodeo sort will be on a Friday and Saturday so save the dates now.  This event will be a Pre-Enter Event.

We do Not have a dress code for the sortings held at our place.  However, we do enforce a dress code at the Mountain States Ranch Rodeo Sorting.  Competitors must wear a Western Shirt, short or long sleeved and either a Western Cowboy Hat or No Hat.

You can ride as many horses as you like whether at a practice or at a competition.  Cost of sorting practices or lessons is $35 per person, per hour.  Cost increased this year by $5 as the cost of hay has significantly gone up and with our current drought things aren’t looking to good.   Heidi is available almost every day for a private or group lesson.  We do not rent or lease horses for practice or competitions.
