Preview: Jonathan Rogers: Lesson on the Flag

Jonathan gives his non-pro and amateur riders a lesson on the flag before they work cows. He does this so they can get comfortable and find their rhythm, without to much pressure. He lets the flag stay in front of the horse a little, allowing the horse to read the stop. Jonathan explains that you have to leave your hand down when you first start because this allows you to identify where the horse may be cheating.

Part 1
Jonathans wife Judy works a cowy 6 year old on the flag. They work the flag like a cow, concentrating on the rate and stop. Their goal is to get both the horse and rider comfortable in a controlled situation before they work cows.
Part 2
Jonathans client Cristy Erickson leaves her hand down at the beginning of the work to allow them to identify what needs to be fixed, from both the horse and riders persepective. He wants to see Cristy adjust her horse with her feet, because this is what you have to be able to do in the show pen.
Part 3
In part three, Jonathan wants to see his client Wayne Erickson stay in the middle of the saddle without leaning and be aware of his position on the flag. He also talks about holding onto the saddle horn too tightly will pull you out of the saddle and therefore affect your rhythm.

How I got started: I used to trade horses and when I was 21, I saw a nice horse in a pasture. So I called in to see if it was for sale at Tim Bowens. It was a cutting horse. It felt great, and that horse would help me learn.
