Chapman Valley Western Riding Club

Presents Its August

Chapman Valley Cutting Show

What is Cutting?

Cutting is a western-style equestrian competition in which a horse and rider work as a team before a judge to demonstrate the horse's athleticism and ability to handle cattle during a 2 1/2 minute performance, called a "run." Each contestant is assisted by four helpers: two are designated as turnback help to keep cattle from running off to the back of the arena, and the other two are designated as herd holders to keep the cattle bunched together and prevent potential strays from escaping into the work area.

A contestant is required to make at least two cuts from the herd, one of which must be a cut from deep inside the herd while the other(s) can be peeled from the edges. Once the selected cow has been driven clear of the herd, the contestant commits the horse by dropping the rein hand to feed slack and give the horse its head. At that point, it is almost entirely up to the horse except for allowable leg cues from the rider to prevent the cow from returning to the herd; a job the best horses do with relish, savvy, and style. Judges score a run on a scale from 60 to 80, with 70 being an average score.

SNAFFLEBIT

The Snafflebit is a one or two handed contest, open to all riders who have not won $3,000 lifetime earnings (excluding age events) or 50 points. Professional trainers will be eligible to complete in Snafflebit classes as long as they have not won $3000. Points won in a Snafflebit class will accumulate to determine a competitor’s eligibility for that class, but will not count towards lifetime earnings or the status of rider. Money and points earned in Snafflebit classes (excluding age events) will be applied to all future classes. Once a horse and rider combination who is eligible to compete in Snafflebit classes compete in a Non Pro class or Novice/Open class, that horse and rider combination are no longer eligible to compete in a Snafflebit class. Points earned whilst competing on a day fee will also be included for eligibility purposes. The burden of proof of eligibility will be on the competitor. A competitor may borrow a horse and may pay a day fee to compete. There is a limit of two horses that may be ridden in this class, however only the points from the highest earning horse will count towards high point awards. Committees may have added money or jackpot events, however points will be tabulated for area high point standings. Horse may be shown using one or two hands on bridle reins.
