Ranch Cutting Horse

The Ranch Cutting Horse class is a horse show class that judges a horse on such things as its cow sense and natural ability to read and work a cow. The Ranch Cutting Horse class is popular at Foundation Quarter Horse Shows, but may also be held under other sanctioning bodies or independently.

In Ranch Cutting horses are encouraged to be (and in some cases required to be) ranch horses, as opposed to a horse specially trained for cutting in the show ring. In Ranch Cutting the horse is usually asked to perform differently than in "regular" horse show cutting. For example, in Ranch Cutting a horse may be asked to cut out only one cow from the herd, and the cow to be cut is chosen by show management instead of the rider. In addition, in Ranch Cutting the rider is typically allowed to visibly rein the horse without losing points. In some Ranch Cutting Horse events, after the cow is held away from the herd for a sufficient time the horse and rider then drive the cow into a pen.
