Cutting is NOT something a horse can just pick up, I don't care how much ranch work he used to do. Ranch work isn't cutting...Cutting is an art and it takes years and years to train and season a successful cutting horse. And years upon years to become a successful rider..If you don't know what you're doing and haven't had that first hand experience you are walking into a whole new world, blindfolded, and no idea what to expect. IMHO, cutting is one of THE hardest western disciplines and it's not just for a beginner to jump into a expect to do well without proper lessons with a trainer and a finished horse to teach them...Your horse would be better suited to team penning or sorting, like mentioned above.. I'm not trying to be a downer but I'm just saying if you don't even know the rules and ways of the cutting world, you're likely to mess up and injure yourself and/or your horse..
