Just want to say that cutting does NOT require more specialized training. It just requires different
It can take up to 2 years to have a finished cutting horse, just like it can take up to 2 years to have a finished barrel horse. There's a lot more to barrel racing training than people think. (Although yes, there are the back country local show folks who just hop on their horse and spur/whip around 3 cans with no training whatsoever. Gives the rest of us who do it right
a bad name.)
To the OP: For myself, I think that Cowboy Mounted Shooting, the Tevis 100, 3-day eventing, and exercising racehorses on the track would be some adrenaline pumps!
