Awesome photos Andrea - and yes, I love your smiling too. Riding horses is fun! Although it's sometimes too easy to forget that.

Welcome, newcomers! :)

Argh, I my little frustration rant of the day (I've had this previously, too) - I want to learn cutting with Snickers, he shows some potential, but such an option is unavailable in my country! ARGH! Maybe there is some good literature or videos available on this topic you could suggest regarding some basic exercises?

I have no idea Saranda. I've always wanted to give western type things a try, but they are pretty uncommon in my country too :(

Let us join in our sorrows for lack of Western disciplines in our countries.

The least I can do is buy Snickers a western headstall and pretend that our barn dog is a cow.

It seems that you didn't let the roos to bond with your pony enough, otherwise it should have worked.

You can't herd other horses? That's how we practice lol. Haven't tried a cow yet but Lizzy loves to chase things so I'm sure we will be fine. This winter/spring we will be trying some team penning. I have never even watched it so it ought to be interesting lol.

My western saddle should be arriving by Friday so then we can start to practice rollbacks and such to get her butt under her.

I actually hadn't thought about that. Most horses are usually busy with their owners, but it might be worth a try.

By the way, what do cutters do if a cow/steer attacks them during cutting? Do the horses know when they have to run/evade, or is the cattle bred to be docile enough?..
