Cutting Class

Hi all!

So I have a 4yr paint mare that has a lot of cow sense, and I've played around with cattle on her and she loves it. I was really hoping to get into team penning and cutting this year with her and the college I'm going to is offering a class.

Basic Fundamentals in Cutting Horses:
Students acquire and demonstrate the basics of positioning the horse in cutting competition and improve livestock handling skills, horse placement techniques, and horse training techniques. Students must have basic riding skills and supply their own horses.

I thought it would be a good place to start to see if there is any future in it, and it sounds like it could be fun.

What do you guys think? Is it worth a shot?



Thanks!
ThePaintGirl

I don't care what she looks like. How is she bred? If she does not have cutting or reining breeding, she will be a lot more difficult to get to work quickly on her back end. Other horses often times do not move their shoulders quickly enough to get anything done on even a lower level.

I don't know her breeding, I bought her as grade. All I know is her sire is APHA, and her dam could be registered APHA. Not helpful at all, I know.

She can move her shoulders very quickly though

sorry paint girl cutting and penning will not work together well.a cutter stays off a cow and holds his ground,a penner charges and chases cattle down the arena.

Live each day as if it is your last for tomorrow is not promised!

It may be a fun class to just get your feet wet though..If you find out you really like it, you may have to invest in a seasoned cutting horse to actually be successful showing...it is very difficult for a green rider (as far as cutting) and green horse to learn cutting at the same time. I think it sounds like a fun, informative class though. Beats sitting in a classroom!
