Barbara Schulte is a top notch cutter and trainer, has won some of top cuttings in the world and has written a very very good book on cutting that anyone getting into it should read.

Iridehorses said it best. Obviously the build and athletisism in a horse plays a huge role. But it's cow-sense that is so deeply inbedded in Quarter horses.
My old cutting trainer kept the babies away from the cattle until they were ready to be put under saddle. One day he was lounging a 2 year old filly and there was a herd across the street. That horse stopped dead in her tracks, ears forward and locked a stare with those cows.

It was amazing to see just how intense these animals are. Yeah, they need training to help them keep off the cow, guid them through their turns, and cut into the herd, but check this video out!!!

The only thing about not using a Quarter horse in things like cutting is that other breeds of horse may not be as "cowey" as the Quarter Horse is. They were bred for cattle work, whereas other breeds may not be.

Thats pretty much it in a nut shell theres different types of cutting but in the NCHA you cannot rein or two hand the horse once you've picked out your cow to work you have to drop the reins. A cutting horse goes to work and cuts alot of horses walk off or stand there without the rider telling them what to do they have no idea. Its alot like herding dogs the good ones do it on their own, you can teach them where to herd say some sheep to but the desire to herd is born into them. If any dog would herd there would be no reason to breed just for that purpose., Same with cutting horses.

I think that part of what started this thread was people wondering how other horse breed that have also been traditionally used for cattle and bred for cattle work did. I.e breeds like the Australian stock horse etc.

People have worked cattle in lots of different countries that had different types of horses so you'd end up with horses bred for the work expected of them.
