Haha that'd be cool. Never done it though.

Ride more, worry less.

I helped train and ride cutters for 4 years, and it is tons of fun - very challenging, and you get very frustrated sometimes, but definitely worth it in the end... I actually got out of it to finish school, but I'm going to try my own filly when she's ready. LOVE the sport - if you want to really "feel" a horse and be totally in tune with it, you should definitely try it out!

yeah deffinately agree with is really fun.its a different equestrian sport besides ur usual barrels, poles and w/ also is different if you already work with cows.i know a lot of people who like to steer wrestle, calf rope, and team penn and this is just different! it deffinately takes a lot of work though.and you are not aloud to use your reins so that makes it harder.every once in a while i would get on that horse that never stood in front of the cow and i always had to sidepass over and what not.but it is a challenge at times! i think people should try awesome.

I pen and sort but don't cut although I would love to give it a try.

I have a Doc O'Lena mare that is coming along and I just picked up a grandson of Doc A'Loc (by Doc Bar) that was used as a turnback/herd holding horse. He is really cowie and has a great handle with a big stop.

My neighbor has some cattle that I'd like to try him on before going to a sorting but I'd love to try to cut on him as well. Problem I see is that you can make a penning or sorting horse from a cutter but not the other way around. I'd hate to spoil him to cutting.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I often wondered about that... Whether or not a cutting horse could do penning etc... What you wrote makes sence!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.
