Herdwork is what’s called a “soft skill,” not because it’s easy, but because the situation is never the same. During herd work it’s challenging because the cattle are always changing position in the herd and in the arena. Plus, as a rider, you make constant decisions on the spot that impact the flow of cattle. 

In this voice-over video, I describe three actions you can take (simultaneously!) to get set up a good cut. They take practice, but a great first step is understanding what they are, and how they impact your cut. 

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
