We have put a new twist on this classic western sport!
Traditionally done on horseback, teams of two race against the clock to sort cattle by number from one pen to another (hands down our most popular event for the 2022 winter series).
Since we believe in collaboration not competition for our team building events, we have teams work together to do the same – but on foot – with a few different challenges thrown in!
Coat The Goat
Well this activity is a hoot and if you thought penning goats sounded like a walk in the park, get ready for the next level.
Individuals work together to get goats to navigate an obstacle course (think herding cats and you’re pretty close). At the end of the course there’s a challenge: all we are going to say is that it involves blindfolds and craft supplies.
Lariats have long been a tool of cowboys to rope horses, cattle, and other livestock on a cowboy ranch.
We will “show you the ropes” and teach you some time-proven techniques in roping.
Feel the rope against your palm as you swing the rope and snag your first calf.
You’ll want to do it over and over again.
Our goats are hilarious and smart. They also never want to go where you want them to go.
Goat penning challenges communication and collaboration skills like nothing else! Work together as a team to move the goats through a series of pens, choosing tools to help you to do so.
