I just started learning and teaching reining to my 5 year old stallion, Dez. I competed in my first reining class at our last show. It was a start, but there is a lot of room to improve :) I don't have pictures, but my husband took video of it - I just don't know how to post video :(

I would LOVE to get into cutting, but it is pretty much non-existant up here :( Maybe one day I can go out of state to do it. Do you need cattle to practice cutting, or are there some maneuvers that can be practiced without?

I have actually never heard of campdrafting - could you explain what it is?

I love your picture, your horse looks so focused and responsive!

I love cutting, reining, roping, and any thing that has to do with a cow. I am lucky enough to have a friend that has a paint horse that came in third last year, then my trainer has a horse that will get down so low that your feet will drag the ground.

I don't have any pics of me but here is a page on my trainers web site that has a few

I don't know where you live but here is a stock horse show that I think you would love

Flying B I looked at the website-COOL!! And now to answer the question 'What is Campdrafting'. Well basically you have a cut out yard where you show the judge how well your horse can work the cattle (only choosing one cow) basically cutting it out. Once you are happy (after about 3 good turns ect) you yell out GATE, the gate people open the gate (there are 4 pegs all up, you basically do a right hand turn around the first one- a left around the other peg that is directally on the side of it and bring the cow up and through two pegs about 20m apart repersenting a gate) Geez I hope I made that simple cause it really is...

Here you go this might make it alil simpler

Here is a person out on the course, I got it from dads pictures but I can't work out who it is

I have done that but it was hard because the horse I was on was green to cows, she was broke but first time around cows and I did not want to push her to hard and make her hate cows so the whole thing was ugly. One of my favorites is where you take a cow and run him down a fence and once you pass a cone you turn him around and then race him back, you try to have the fastest time.

Kool, my dad trians them at home so when we go out he isn't imbarrest how his horse performs He says he has a big name to fill (refering to his father) But I am so glad you gave it a try Flying B! It really is fun

Campdrafting sounds very cool - I wish we had more activities like that up here, but we don't live in a place where cattle are really raised, so it would be purely recreational :(

Oh well, we do have reining, and I am having a lot of fun learning that.

How is campdrafting and cutting scored?

I LOVE cutting and reining!!!! I've never heard of campdrafting but it sounds cool!! I live on a cattle ranch so if I want to practice, I can just ride out in the field and cut out any cow I want!!! It rocks!!

Geez I thought Campdrafting was a nation wide thing-maybe not...... I am not 100% sure on how it is scored, when you cut out it is out of 100%. My best is 85 cut out.......

Campdrafting is nation wide, there isn't that many people that do it because its kind of hard, most people can't move a cow that well, most people can't move there horse well enough to move the cow that well :roll:
