April 13 ~ Photo A Day #103

Saturday was the first of the High Desert Cutters’ summer show series. We spent the day at Roaring Springs Ranch south of Frenchglen.  The club is a very low key group that enjoys getting together to work their horses…training them to be cutting horses.

Or in my case, I’m not training Colt to be a cutting horse, but a reined cow horse. I use the event as practice for my herd work in the reined cow horse competitions.

Either way, it’s a great way to get out with your horse and see how it stacks up to the others in the class! We have awesome awards at the end of the season too. It’s a lot of fun.

The day could have been a bit nicer…it looks great since the sun is shining, but the wind was blowing up to 40 mph gusts and the blowing sand was terrible. At the end of the day, we were all dirt and grit with faces that felt like they had been sandblasted!

Teaching a Young Cow Horse

Are we complaining? Na…we’ll go out there and do it all over again!
