Aren't you suppose to have a special saddle for cutting? What is the difference with the "normal" saddle?

well imo i would think that a cutting horse would NOT want to stop chasing a cow for like roping or wrestling. because they were trained to follow the cow. but thats just my opinion. and yeah i thought it made sense.they might be pretty good at barrels with the turning they have to do but idk how that would work out as far as running to the barrel and then going around it. haha...i know some of the cutting horses at my barn would prob run up to at and then turn on their haunches in the barrel.lmao

Kitten, a cutting saddle has a flat seat and a very high horn.

Chasin, a cutter needs to go slow and be methodical in the herd then actually only work in front of the herd. A penner needs to go fast and chase the cow as well as preventing him from returning.

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 have never done it, but it is a goal to work for when I GET BETTER.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

*raises hand and jumps up and down* Me! Ooooh, me!

Haha. I don't do very big stuff, but I'm training this Nu Cash/Peppy San Badger filly that is just AMAZING. She's only two and already crazy cowy.

And I was riding this Doc Bar gelding for a while that was professionally trained. Ahh. It's an awesome sport. You're totally in tune with the horse.

To rein a horse is not only to guide him,
but also to control his every movement.
