Cutting competition is all action and very exciting to watch….
Sue of “ A word in your ear” has asked for action this week and that reminded me of when my daughter competed on quarter horses in the cutting competitions. Quarter horses are very intelligent and are trained to cut out one beast from the herd and then hold it there as it tries to get back into the herd. Notice the rider does not control the horse, the reins are left slack, the horse makes the decisions and the rider just has to stay in the saddle.
