Post What to do?

Hi guys, I am new to the forum and this is my first question so here we go. I'm kinda stuck and i don't know what to do. I'm trying to decide on whether i should do cutting or barrels. I know they both take tons of work, but i'm really just looking for opinions on both sides. Should i take lessons in each discipline or something else? Thanks.

It comes down to what you like what your horse likes what area you are in and so much more. Also what you can afford. While you should get a trainer to help you no matter what you want to learn cutting is a very expensive sport b/c of the cattle fees to show and the need of fresh cattle to work your horse on. This is why I do reining and reined cow horse over cutting. There are more NRHA and NRCHA shows around here then NCHA shows. The cost is less the prize money is just as good. So at the end of the day reining is a better match for me in this area. So you need to look around and see what your area has to offer and the cost.

Then go take some lessons in both or even other disciplines and see what you like the best.
