    Paul is actually 15.2 hands. I hit the wrong number when I was typing out his info :)

    Our training has been going well. I decided to start my cutting training as well as of late July. Paul is still learning with his trainer, and I am learning with my trainer and hopefully, once we both accomplish our goals, we'll pair up and be incredible. I actually just worked the flag the first time today. It felt natural and I am hoping this is something I am truely good at. It would definitely be a first. The training horse I ride is 28 but you would never know it. He has a ton of energy and keeps me on my toes. Next week, I will work a different horse so that I can feel the differences.

    When I start cutting next year, it will be in the $2000.00 competition class and the belt buckle class.

    I worked my first cows this past weekend. I was just going to go out and ride but our barn owner thought we could use practice on cows. There is another gentlemen learning how to cut at our barn and although he is a few lessons in front of me, he thought it couldn't hurt to have me work the herd as well. I did turn back for a few rounds and watched closely what everyone else was doing. I very quietly went in and did an awesome job cutting a cow from the herd. Got a few good turns with the cow before it slipped by me. I worked 3 more cows and then turned back for the other riders. It was a great experience and I was rather proud of myself.

    This week, I worked on staying off the cow flag. I am riding a horse that loves to face down the cow instead of staying along the side. Paul never seems to want to face down so I can't wait to start working with him but for now, I need to refine my skills.

    Things I need to work on is keeping heels down, not pulling on the reins unless I am stopping the horse, leaning back into my stops, and trusting the horse to being able to cut a cow without much help from me.

    Another lesson Thursday. My trainer is giving me a faster flag to practice. It's been so much fun.

    Today I had a ****e day. I felt off and so did the horse I was riding. She was having problems staying focused because she had been out in the pasture with the herd for over a week and was having anxiety issues being without them. I hope next weekend I have a better lesson. October 30th will be here before I know it.

    I did work paul a bit today and my trainer worked him on the flag. He did fabulous. He's really coming along well. Hoping that with my continued work on Hickory and Paul's work with his trainers, we'll be working together in shows next Spring.

    Hey! It's awesome that your cutting! I love cutting and love riding my cutting horses. There isn't a ride like it. I hope you guys do well with your cutting in the spring.

    May I ask, what is the breeding of your cutting horse and also are you going to compete in NCHA shows?
