The sport of ranch cutting developed as a way for cowboys to show off their expertise.

Stetson Bowl hosts equine showcase

Sunday, the B.C. Ranch Cutting Horse Association showcases the one of the fastest-growing sports in the west.

Are you looking for a sport with high-speed action and raw horsepower?

The B.C. Ranch Cutting Horse Association is holding a show at the Stetson Bowl in Cloverdale June 21 that will showcase the fast-growing sport.

Organizers say ranch cutting dates back to the old west, to the days before motorized vehicles when cowboys and their horses separated or “cut” cattle from the herd. The sport developed as a way for ranchers and cowhands to show off their expertise and earn bragging rights for their cow-savvy horses.

These days, participants don’t need to own a spread like Ponderosa – just a horse that’s a willing partner, and a desire to have a lot of fun. The club offers classes for all ages and skill levels.

The Father’s Day event gets underway at 8 a.m. at the Stetson Bowl on the Cloverdale Fairgrounds and will continue throughout the day, rain or shine. Admission is free.
