There are few things more exciting than becoming “one” with a thousand-pound horse and anticipating the moves and grace, then feeling the responses of a well-trained cutting horse.
A cutting horse needs to be quick, yet stay quiet, to show well in competition. In cutting competitions, the rider must appear “to be going along for the ride.” Even the posture of the rider is known as the “Cutter’s Slump.” This posture is very different from other forms of horse showmanship, in that, the rider’s back must appear slightly bent and relaxed, never rigid. Further, your hands never move the reins. Any cues you give your horse are done through your thighs, knees and heels.
