Are you lacking a good cow horse? Ride along with NRCHA Pro Jake Telford of Caldwell, Idaho as he takes a steer down the fence — you’re going to want to grab some mane for this one!
Taking a cow down the fence is arguably one of the biggest rushes you can get in a western saddle. As part of the cattle work component of a reined cow horse competition, the horse and rider is required to run the cow down the fence and then stop and turn it in both directions, showing that the horse can rate and control the cow. It’s the maneuver that inspired reiners to master the sliding stop and rollback, but with a more practical application.
