Michael Cooper: Working Angles

Michael Cooper is a master at breaking down the training of cutting horses into simple exercises. In this video he explains how working a horse at certain angles to a cow can give it the advantage over the cow.

He trains a four year old that hasn’t done a lot of showing but that has a lot of draw. His challenge here is to correct the horse from traveling too flat to the cow. He achieves this with certain exercises that will teach you:

* How to get the horse to listen to your leg
* How this will move the horse’s ribs out the of the way so the hips can move off and enable the horse to find the right angle to the cow
* The best spot on the cow to be in to win
* To stop a horse being distracted by the turn back and focus on the cow
* Why it’s important to watch the horse’s ears
* Dry work to help loosen up a horse
