hehe i know what actual cutting is in the horse world..i was being goofy b/c thats what emo aka cutters kids do to get attention!( superficcial cuts on their forarms) so people ask "oh you poor baby what happened?"its pathetic...i was just making a joke. a little play on words the name of this thread was " cutting...do you?"

I did cutting when i was younger. i made it to the high school national finals on my cutting mare in 1991-1993. two weeks before the finals in 1993 my mare passed away so i had to ride another horse that my grandfather had. i made it to the short go at the high school finals and i lost a cow boy was i sick. after that i never cut again. i went to barrel racing. i love the cow bred horses running barrels they are very sharp and catty. my grandfather use to train cutting horses but he passed away in 1999 and now my aunt took over and now trains them in Mississippi. good luck with your mare....
Been cutting for a few years now. Worked for a few great trainers...and rode some amazing horses! Worked for Barb McDonnell in BC for about 4 years. She owns "Sonitas Caddilac" who is my baby! this horse is my world...We did amazing together in teh BC cutting horse association and in the Interior cutting horse association. Then i went and worked for a Morgan cutting horse trainer which was amazing as welll!His horses were built just like quarter horses adn could do the exact same things when it came to the cutting world. My gelding was in training with him(QH baby of the stud i was riding) and he did amazing. We kicked some major but thats for sure...entered high school rodeo events which took place with the ICHA since i was the only one in the event at the time in BC. Now i moved away from home and havnt rode a cutting horse in a few years besides the ocational trip back home...o how i miss it...but it is an amazing sport! wish i was still doing it...
I have ridden some cutting bred horses (mr. san peppy, poco lena, dry doc) but never professionally. The horses I ride now will watch a cow enough to work the yearlings on the ranch but not nearly well enough for a show. :9
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
