  • Description

    THE 21ST ROYAL WINDSOR HORSE SHOW OPENED TODAY (THURSDAY). IT'S A THREE-DAY EVENT DURING WHICH THERE ARE COMPETITIONS IN MANY CLASSES OF HORSEMANSHIP.

    THIS YEAR THERE HAS BEEN A RECORD NUMBER OF ENTRIES WITH 1,235 RIDERS COMPETING.

    ONE INNOVATION THIS YEAR WAS A DISPLAY BY THE CANADIAN CUTTING HORSE ASSOCIATION WHO HAVE A TEAM OF VIRTUOSO RIDERS CURRENTLY TOURING BRITAIN.

    THE CANADIAN CUTTING HORSE IS ONE OF THE MOST REMARKABLE OF HORSES. DEVELOPED FROM THE FAMOUS NORTH AMERICAN QUARTER HORSE - SO NAMED FOR ITS ABILITY TO OUTPACE A RACING THOROUGHBRED OVER A QUARTER OF A MILE - THE CANADIAN CUTTING HORSE IS UNBEATEN FOR AGILITY AND CONTROL.

    WATCH THESE HORSES AND RIDERS IN ACTION. THE SPORT, DEVELOPED FROM RANCH WORK, INVOLVES CUTTING OUT A YOUNG STEER AND HOLDING HIM AWAY FROM THE HERD. DURING THE TWO AND A HALF MINUTES EACH RIDER HAS, HE DEMONSTRATES THE ABILITY OF HIS HORSE, WITHOUT THE USE OF THE REINS, TO MATCH THE STEER WITH TERRIFIC SHORT BURSTS OF SPEED AND AGILE TURNS.

    WHEN QUEEN ELIZABETH AND PRINCE PHILIP VISIT THE SHOW TOMORROW THE CANADIANS WILL PRESENT THE PRINCE, WHO IS THEIR PATRON, WITH ONE OF THEIR TWO-YEAR OLD CUTTING HORSES.
