Our Cutting Horse Experience
It was part mutual wedding anniversary gift, part something we needed to do, and part something I wanted to do. Watching a ride on a cutting horse is exciting. It’s one of the few disciplines where you have to let the horse do it’s job. Ranae has no desires to do it competitively, but enjoys working around cows. I think it is a great way to “change it up” for my horse. It’s important to try different things so Jessie does not get bored. While she’ll likely never be a professional cutting horse, letting her work on cows gives her a job. As long as I’ve been riding Jessie I’ve used a snaffle and so I also wanted some advice on moving out of the snaffle.
With all that we headed out to a local trainer/manager of a Sundance Feedlot to see just where our horses were in their training. As it turns out, both horses were not nearly where we thought they were. On this episode of the Whoa Podcast we tell you about our back to back lessons with trainer Robert Bias.
Do you think it’s a good idea to see a trainer once in awhile? If so, how do you choose a trainer? Send you suggestions and experiences to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for listening,
Welcome to the Whoa Podcast about Horses and Horsemanship. I am your host John Harrer. Along with my wife, Ranae, each week on the show we talk about some aspect of owning a horse. It could be feeding or supplementation. It could be bits and bridles, tack, or cowboy boots. We cover training problems, or competing in shows. We talk to farriers and horse chiropractors. We talk about movies, books and magazine articles. And, we travel to places we think you would like to take your horse. That’s what the Whoa Podcast is all about.
