The horse and rider select and separate a calf out of a cattle herd. The calf then tries to return to the herd; the rider loosens the reins and leaves it entirely to the horse to keep the calf separated. A contestant has 2 1/2 minutes to show his horse; typically three cows are cut during a run, although working only two cows is acceptable. A judge then awards points to the cutter.
