that's almost exactly what im doing. And I don't know if it was just a stroke of luck or a one time thing but last night when riding her I got her to go forward most of the time just by squeezing my calves into her and smooching. Not kicking, not putting my heels into her but just lightly squeezing & giving her a smooch. I've never rode a cutting horse so her handle & the way she is trained on her cues & what makes her tick & move im trying to learn so she can understand me & what im asking. I've heard backign up is a huge thing in cutting so I kind of figured its a training thing not a being bullheaded thing. She does it as soon as you get on until she gets the cue (whatever it may be?) to stop & go forward.
