Actually a lot of it is trained instinct, the entire thing is not directed by leg. I got the chance to ride a world champion cutting horse, and that thing SCREWED onto that cow, only leg cues I gave he was to get up and go after the cow a little daster.:P

What a good looking Appy! I'd have him in my barn.

Riding a cutting horse is something everyone should try once just to do it. My grandfather had a money earning son of Poco Pine when I was growing up. I got to play with him on the flag & goats a handful of times (was too young/little at that point for cattle - I was probably 7 or 8) and those are some of my favorite riding memories. Nothing quite as fun as sitting a good cutting horse.

How much of this is the rider and how much is the horse's instinct? It seems this appy is very adept at judging the body language of the buffalo, and acting accordingly. Kind of amazing.
The appy is trained pretty well but he's a really jumpy and jerky ride..The rider is supposed to keep his hands down through out the ride, especially while showing/cutting. The can only back off the calf when the calf faces away and is "done".. All of the cues are in the seat and the legs, very subtle cues..You want the horse to mirror image the calf with as little from the rider as possible, and smooth movements..

What fun would that be? Wonder if they're harder to cut than cows? Probably.
A lot of trainers/riders use buffalo because they don't get burned out on it like a cow will. A calf will get tired of it and just stand there where as a buffalo will keep going, and I hate to say it's stupid but it just does the same thing over and over again.

You are sooo right, I would consider giving up barrels for cutting but there's just no demand for cutting horses, sorters, and penners here.. I love it though. Makes me drool..Absolutely my favorite bloodlines also..

I would give an arm for this horse..Probably more than an arm.. I've seen him compete in person a few times and met him.. Absolute sweetest stallion ever..

This is my favorite video ever of a cutting horse. I watch it almost daily and every time my heart just pounds. I truly love this sport and this is one of the greatest riders I've ever had the pleasure to watch show a horse and meet.

See how this horse moved the exact same as that cow. Wow. I love that!

Plus I love Dual Pep horses...probably why there is 3 in my barn right now:)

Man, too bad cutting horses seem to be so short all the time. I only wish I came across 16hh horses with that much cow more often.

And look at both the riders style and the horse. I love how Paul shows a horse. His shoulders back and not leaning down on the horn like so many cutters do. He is sitting back and out of that horses way and look how that gelding gets around. Love it!
