If you plan to show the horse cutting then its really not worth it. Unless you get a professional you will only be spending money on entry fees. There are sooo many little things professionals know that someone who isnt professional will not realize.

If you want to do it for fun i say just get out there and move some cows.

I just want to do it for high school rodeo but if thats it just kinda thought it would be cool to learn to do. There are only 4 cutters in my district

Get a professional trainer.

Cutting is very competitive at the high school rodeo level, even if "only four" people are entered.

Expensive for a trainer, yes, but when you want to compete at a certain level, you should do it right.

Then sounds like your best bet would be to forget about cutting

I agree with others, if you don't get a pro trainer to help you, then you'd just be wasting the money on the entry fees.

Yeah, unless you are already pretty experienced in cutting, it would be very difficult to try and train a horse to become a cutter without a trainers help. There are a lot of little details that are greatly fixed by having a trainer watch you ride and point out. I'm sure he would still be fun to push cows with :)
