Community

When American cowboys of the 1800?s ran cattle together on open ranges, they gathered each year to separate their herds from their neighbors. This is what we call “Cutting”. Along with what naturally occurs when you bring a group of people working together, it turns into a competition. From this we have seen many “Legends” in the Cutting industry that give us inspiration to keep this sport going. The Cutting heritage runs strong and deep and has for centuries. In the 1800?s it was also a grand social event and nothing much from that has changed today. The ranchers gathered, there was a Cutting competition, and the families shared their stories and wares from the last gathering. They shared crafts, recipes, and laughter. They helped teach and guide the children and developed a strong community.
