    My boy is cutting trained and was supposedly quite good at it. I'd love to give it a try when I get the equipment for it

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

    Well kitten_val...its just like theres a different saddle for barrels and trail/pleasure riding. Just a cutting 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 that's 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 have never done cutting although THAT WOULD ROCK but I do have a reiner and I have a friend who has a team penner who went to world like 10 years ago. Got third at the age of 3!

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

    *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.
