    I am having a really hard time staying in the saddle during a hard stop and right turn. My trainer has changed my hands on the reins/horn, but I am still falling foward. Working the flag is not a problem. Any suggestions?

    I would really lke to know about using your feet while riding the cutting horse. I have been advised that it is best to train the horse to the spur( versus leg pressure ) to drop his head and be “collected” , ie: with constant spur in his belly, and then drop your heels for the stop. I understand drop the heels for stop but am uncomfortable with the rest. I would love to hear your advice thanks

    I would like some insight on how to better work/sort used cattle. I do pick a few that might work before I go in the herd, but seem to have a difficult time driving them out to ultimately be the one that is cut. Probably 75% of the time I end up cutting shape from the last 2-3 that sweep by (hoping to be lucky enough to have a good one there). On fresh cattle, I don’t seem to have as much trouble sorting. I don’t think it is a communication issue between me and my help, but I know my cattle sorting skills could always improve. I’m very comfortable with having to “ride” my horse. However, I dislike situations where a cow is too fast or won’t look at us, and I don’t want to have to constantly head the cow myself to avoid bouncing off the walls. I think the problem could be avoided altogether by sorting differently/better. Is there is some specific technique I should be doing, or material I should read/watch that will help?

    For reference:
    I don’t have cattle at home, nor do I have any regular trainers that I work with (they are hours away from me.) I usually ride in the 30NP, 15AM, or one of the NH-NP classes. Over the years, I feel I’ve been successful, and I can’t think of very many weekends where I haven’t gotten any checks or did horrible. I would like to improve enough where I feel comfortable paying larger entry fees to move up (competition wise) to show in the 50AM or the Non-Pro as well as eventually showing an “unfinished” horse in the 3-6yo non-pro classes.

    Describe your best horse. For those of us who don’t have the opportunity to ride “lots” of horse, please explain how you know when you have a “good” horse and when you have one that is a not worth training. How do you know what makes that horse a cutter versus a reined cow horse, etc. Thanks!

    I’m really looking forward to your interview tomorrow. What’s on my mind right now is how to “tighten” my horse down on a cow. He’s a very snakey 7 year old son of Cat the used to be a little irresponsibel as a stud. Now, as a gelding, he’s cowing a lot better and showing a lot of style and correct form but has a few misses every run. I dont want to scare him but clearly he needs to get a little more serious still. It feels like a fine line to tread.
