Preview: Phil Rapp: Lessons on Herd Work

Phil explains why stepping forward is the key to making great cuts. He gives all of the participants at the NCHA Cutting Academy, held in Fort Smith, AK sponsored by Waco Bend, great advice on the little things they could change whist working their horses out of the herd. In this three part video series you will learn:

* How to clear the herd on your cut
* Why you need to use two hands sometimes to get a square stop
* If you’re having trouble on one side of the arena, it’s probably because of what you may be doing on the other side
* Waiting on your cow can help you get even with the cow
* The importance of being even on both sides of the cow

Part 1
Phil gives us a brief background on himself and discusses why stepping forward is so important. He critiques the clinic participants as they work their horses out of the herd.
Part 2
In part two, Phil schools 3 more riders on the principals of driving forward. He emphasizes the importance of patience in the stop to allow the cow to dictate movement and avoid misses. He also gives great pointers on riding technique
Part 3
Here, Phil coaches riders on key habits to develop such as always turning your horse to the center of the arena when you quit the cow and why it could save your skin in a competition.
