I just purchased a new mare she's an AQHA 10 yr old mare De Luxe Maganna and she was trained & shown in cutting but the people I purchased her from just trail rode her. She rides amazingly & has one heck of a handle on her, very sensitive to leg pressure & movements. I am not familiar at all with cutting, I've only barrel raced & trail rode. But with her when you go to get on her at first whenyou get ready to head out ( out on a trail or anything) she backs up & will do so until somthing clicks then she goes forward. I don't know if its because im confusing her in some way with what im asking of her to go forward? Or if there is a certain cue that is used on cutting horses that is a go forward cue. Someone told me she does this because its what the do when they are getting ready to do their job? Like I said im TOTALLY clueless about cutting or the training involved or riding one that has a handle on it like her. I've dealt with his issue before in numerous horses but it was always due to stubbornness & being hard headed with her its not like that. Its like she turns her head back & is waiting for a cue. Does anyone have any tips on this or what I can do?
