Keen Competitors and energetic horses combine to complete at our annual Team Penning event held in August each year.  Team Penning is an equestrian sport for all ages.  Teams of three riders of various abilities and three spirited horses, race the clock to yard three head of cattle within the maximum time allowed of two minutes. Cash and prizes await the fastest teams of the hotly contested final. 

Despite the extremely dry conditions in August 2018, our Team Penning event was held.  Although a smaller number of teams entered to compete for a place in the ten run final, the event was still a great success. 

The Oakey Show Society wishes to sincerely thank major sponsor Bernborough Hardware for their continued support.  Matt and Alice Edwards of Edwards Livestock and John, Kerry and Andrew of Lake Lillerie Feedlot supply the cattle to make this event possible.  Strassburgs Transport with driver Peter Barron transport the cattle to and from the event.
