Wow those are so cool! And that shows that if the horse is trained with kindness, it loves what it does :)

Im not saying that at all, just saying that sometimes, very rarely, you get horses that are not trained kindly, then they end up hating what they do. Im just saying, I'm not saying anything bad by it at all

I was just saying that they most certainly must love what they do. My post had nothing to do with yours! Lol

Ironically, aside from the cutting horse, the other ones are doing it out of pure obedience and drill - not love. Most barrel horses spend their lives running that pattern over and over, they know what to do, and they don't know what to do if they can't do what they're supposed to. These are the same horses that are uncontrollable neurotic wrecks in the chute, and often the same horses that finally blow in the middle of an arena, severely injuring or killing their rider. There's a reason why the rider has fallen off to allow the horse to continue this way. As for the spinning horse, that's some good training as he's obviously being cued.

The cutting horse one I absolutely love, again it's a lot of training, but cutting horses get a lot more chances to really think for themselves and work that cow. A true cowboy relies on his horses ability to think for himself to help get the job done, and the video depicts a true range horse who's got some cow.

Sorry for being the downer, it's just that it's unfortunately opposite of what LoveStory10 said - it's more rare you'll find the horse that does his job out of sheer enjoyment, and FAR more often you'll find the horse who does his job just so he doesn't get whupped or yelled at.

I disagree with you Macabre. I may be training and the horses know the pattern but plenty of horses dump their riders and DO NOT finish the pattern. As for the spinning, even on cue he wouldn't do it if he didn't want to.
