Preview: Jonathan Rogers: Pre-Futurity Work

Jonathan can be seen working two futurity prospects just days before the NCHA Futurity begins with the Dual Rey becoming a finalist. The cows are tough and Jonathan emphasizes not to lose your cool because tough cattle teach horses to be smarter and to not over reach through the turn. He also works a couple of two year olds on cattle and quotes Paul Hansma about the importance of rate, stop and then turn.

Part 1
Jonathan works two Futurity prospects and concentrates on getting them more accurate and comfortable so they can be shown. The stud is a little bowed up and he spends a little more time doing some dry work in between cows to try and break his feet and mind free.
Part 2
Jonathan likes to make the horse/cow relationship as simple as possible. He likes to have square stops and although he is working around he is still teaching the horse to stay up against that cow.
Part 3
In part two, Jonathan trains a 2 year old that is a little resentful with getting broke and Jonathan chips away at this whilst travelling with the cow. This helps take the horse's mind off Jonathan and keep it on the cow.

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.
