Cowgirl Cool: How To Enter Your Cutting Horse Era…Inspired By Bella Hadid

|

First and foremost: REAL cowgirls LOVE introducing their lifestyle to new people and being inclusive! Periodt.

The proud boyfriend of Bella Hadid, Adan Banuelos, said on Instagram, “Proud of our girl ✨ Bella and #MetallicTito taking home 3rd place at their first show out! Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this duo…”

What exactly is cutting and how does one get involved? Glad you asked! What began on the historical ranches of the cattle drive days has progressed into a multi-million dollar sport pairing horses and their riders up against a cow for a fierce competition lasting two and a half minutes. When competing, a rider will guide their horse through a herd of cattle to pick out one cow and “cut” it away from the herd. Once the cow is cut, the rider will drop their hand and let the horse go to work, using its natural instinct paired with training and subtle cues from the rider’s leg to keep the cow away from the herd. During these two and a half minutes, riders will guide the horse back into the herd to cut two to three cows in total. 

Cutting competitions are held around the world each weekend, offering classes for beginner riders who don’t own their own horse all the way through to the highest level of the sport. Whether you have been riding horses your entire life or just grew an interest, there is a home for you in NCHA

NCHA members come from all walks of life and are of all ages, with members ranging from less than 10 years old to over 80 years of age. Some of our members are fans who never swing a leg over a horse, while others are professional trainers who compete throughout the year and everything in between. The membership demographic includes students, artists, lawyers, construction workers, teachers, and more.

One of the best ways to get started in cutting is by contacting a trainer. Trainers are located across the world, and there is someone close by who can help you. To find a list of trainers in your area, visit the NCHA’s trainer directory.
