Cutting... I got to help push cows for some team ropers with my horse before, and actually working the cow was a blast, even at a slow and confused pace. I think it would be super awesome to do it at speed! My horse did seem to love playing with cows, so I'd like to do some ranch sorting or penning with him.
I still ride our cutting horse occasionally - he's leased out as a babysitter to family friends for their kids - but I go over and keep him (and myself) tuned up every so often. He loves to cut! It is so exhilirating to ride one that knows his business - you just sit back and enjoy the ride!!!
I also ride a reining horse on a fairly regular basis - belongs to a friend that is a bit intimidated by him - so I get to have FUN!!!!
And neither horse knows what a tranter OR a spur stop is!!!
