Some may consider my cutting horse a "robot." But, she is a highly trained, driven and money winning robot. I have no doubt that I could claim a first place on her with a good partner and workable set of calves anyday. She has finess, collection, talent and athleticism... Probably one of the most amazing athletes I've ever met.
But, that same mare is in no way a robot. That mare has a personality all her own, and is oftentimes the one "helping" the ranch hands mend fences and loading herself in an open trailer when no one is looking. She loves jumping, swimming and getting sprayed by the water hose and knows how to open the tack room door and I have no idea to this day how she does it. She's an individual, far from robotic, but conventionally trained with terrible, harsh bits and heavy, ill-fitting tack (according to Cynthia)
