Depends on the Asso. The NCHA is by far the largest cutting org and according to them 96% of the horses that cut in their cuttings are QH's.

My horse is an Australian Stock Horse, and I'm starting cutting on him either half way through this year, or 2010, haven't decided.

But he has a gummy shoulder, so I'm deciding between cutting and reining at the moment

Mm...I didn't really consider that. I assume you might see more variety at the lower levels, yes?

At a local, "let's give it a try" show you may find a variety of breeds but when points and money is on the line you will only see QH and, to a much lesser number, Paints. Those horses are specifically bred for the job.

That is not to say that an Arab or TWH hasn't done cutting and maybe they were even good at it, beating QH at the local level but they just never make it to the statewide level or beyond. As a breed, they just don't have the build or cow sense that has been bred into the QH.

The right tool for the job - you can pound in a nail with a pliers, but a hammer does a better job.

I would be interested to see an ASH fully cutting trained up against all your QH's. The ASH is bred for cattle sense as well, it would be an interesting competition!

I think if they were really good at it you'd see them in big competitions. All the cutting trainers I know could care less about the breed of horse their big concern is getting to the pay window. Their going to take the horses that get them there.

Thought this was interesting: quote from Punk Carter talking about the two Lusitanos he's been training as cutters.

Well I've only seen qhs but I bet theres alot of other breeds that do it...idont really watch lower levels of cutting so I wouldnt know but theres bound to be other breeds. Personally I think qhs work best with the cows because they r built for it.and they are smart and quick.
