I just got a 5yr old gelding, his dam comes from a cutting line cow horse line (apparently a good one) his Dad is a well known Reiner, let's just say he's a well bred fella (he's the first nice horse I've owned!) He has been reining trained and shown. He has not worked on cows YET!
He has a nice roll back and stop, is very light and responsive.
I have worked cows before on other horses, I'm just wondering if you could give me some pointers about how to introduce my new guy to cattle work in a positive way so that he learns to enjoy it and work a cow like a cat! (hopefully!). I have some good people around me to help, but was wondering what tips I could gather here
