Preview: Michael Cooper: Building the Cow into the Horse

“You don’t know what your dealing with till you put your hand down,” says Michael Cooper in this video. It’s the perennial challenge that keeps all cutters on their toes. It’s the challenge that keeps most trainers and riders fascinated and fearful at the same time! In this video, Michael works a well-trained four year old that needs to become more cowy. So watch for:

* Why he doesn’t lope this particular horse much
* How and why he doesn’t back the horse up much
* How he lets the horse cow up more than other horses
* How he works his turn back so his horse can focus on the cow
* How he teaches the horse to respect the cow

How I got started: My cousin was working for Kenneth Galyean, when I was 13 and we went and rode his cutting horses when he wasn’t home.
