Cutting is highly specialized and nowadays, stylized, too. Ranch horses are big on versatility. Ranch Horse competitions I believe cover working cow, reining, maybe even pleasure and roping? Not too sure, but they are jacs of all trades. Western Horseman has an article this month about ranch horse competition ( I have yet to read it, though!) Maybe check it out!

Yes a ranch horse is much more versatile, they are usually bigger animals as well. Cutting is very specialized and that is all those horses, cut cows.

A ranch horse can cut (possibly not as well as a cutter), pen, rope, sort etc.

Thanks for clearing that for me, folks! May be taking some cutting lessons here and some reining there will make her "overall ranch horse". Ha-ha-ha! Just kidding, of course.. :)
