Horsemanship is a term that encompasses the skills, knowledge, and understanding needed to form a harmonious relationship with a horse. It involves treating the horse with respect and working with its natural instincts and behavior to create a positive and safe riding experience.


Reining is a western riding competition for horses where the riders guide the horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins, and stops. All work is done at the lope, or the gallop.



Calf roping, or tie-down roping, was originally practiced by ranch hands as a means to catch calves for branding and doctoring. When out in the middle of a pasture with no fences to corral a calf, a cowboy was left with his sturdy rope and trusty horse.



The cutting horse, is a light saddle horse trained to cut (isolate) livestock, especially cattle, from herds. Most are quarter horses, with the intelligence, speed, and ability to make quick starts, stops, and turns.
