Reading through the Wikipedia page of  deceased former casino owner Benny Binion, I discovered that he was a former cutting horse owner.

The first thing that sprang to mind was the image of a reality TV show featuring an equestrian Michelin Star recipient brandishing a carbon steel chef’s knife.

Fortunately for the sake of entertainment purposes it turned out to be something quite different.

In reality, Cutting is an equestrian event in the western riding style where a horse and rider are judged on their ability to separate a single animal away from a cattle herd and keep it away for a short period of time.

I’m not sure if I could sit through a full tournament of this, but a 2 minute 43 second video was good enough to keep me entertained.
