Adrenaline-packed horses

Cutting horse action comes to Thunderbird Show Park this Saturday with big cash prizes and proceeds to B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Are you an adrenaline junkie with a craving for high speed action and raw horsepower? The B.C. Ranch Cutting Horse Association, a grass-roots club based in the Fraser Valley that promotes the sport of cutting, may have just the thing for you.

In yesteryear when a cowboy and his trusty four-legged “ATV” needed to doctor a cow out on the lone prairie the horse and rider had to “cut” the animal out of the herd. Over the years the sport developed as way for ranchers and cowhands to show off their expertise and earn bragging rights for their cow-savvy horses.

These days you don’t need a spread like the Ponderosa to participate, just a horse that is a willing partner and a desire to have a lot of fun.

The B.C. Ranch Cutting Horse Association is holding its last show of the season on Saturday, Oct. 27 at Thunderbird Show Park in Langley. The day’s activities will kick off at 9 a.m. and run throughout the day.

Feature classes include the Open, Non-Pro and $10,000 Novice classes where they are offering over $1,500.00 in added prize money.

The afternoon will feature a real crowd pleaser, the Bridleless Invitational. If there was ever any doubt that these horses don’t enjoy what they are doing, this class will lay that notion to rest in a hurry.

Step into your cowboy boots and venture on over to Thunderbird Show Park, where organizers will be auctioning off the bridleless contestants, with the proceeds going to B.C. Children’s Hospital.
