The Reviews are Coming In!

"My husband and I have been cutting for the last fifteen years or so. Before that we showed AQHA shows. You might say we are students of the sport. We buy many of the DVD cutting videos put out. For Christmas my husband bought your new DVD. Many DVDs are directed at training the cutting horse. We are not trainers, we work with a trainer. We found your DVD to be more directed to the Non-Pro. It is the best one I've seen! We have had friends watch it, and they said it is the best one they've watched. While watching the DVD I said to myself "Well, I do that." Then while riding I found myself on occasion making some mistakes... like stop, rock back, and then go. The DVD made me more conscious of that. It was like an "Oops!" moment."

"Just wanted to say the video was great Jessica and I really enjoyed it. It picked up a lot of key points that some people leave out. The information is very easy to understand and take in. It is worth the money. Thanks again for all you do for the great sport of cutting."
Corey Trammel

"I bought a copy of your video at the futurity this month and I wanted to tell you what a good job you did on this very insightful and helpful training video. I am an amateur and won about $35k in the mid-1990s and am now semi-retired and getting back into showing. I work hard at trying to perfect my riding and showing, and after watching your video a couple of times, I wanted you to know that it seemed like you know all about me and that you made this video just for me.
I also watched you at the Futurity, and I noticed how attentive you were to your non-pro and amateur clients.
Thanks so much for your contribution to the cutting horse industry."
Ron Malone

"Loved your video, can't recall the last time I've felt I've got my moneys worth like I have when I purchased it last Saturday.  Already learned great deal.  Would like very much to come to your clinic.  I'm sure you could help me a lot.  For 4 or 5 years I have been trying to learn this sport and your video sure will help me reach my goal."

Cutting Horse Video - Cutting Just The Basics SOLD OUT

Hello Bill
I got that DVD just the other day and, man its a good one. I ride by myself most of the time working cattle in the round pen. I'm bad to chase after them if there lazy cattle, being a rancher and moveing cattle around the ranch horse back, well that's how I start all my colts and when I get them going good we go to the round pen.

So this DVD has got me back no track with my bad habits in the round pen, that imaginary line, stopping correctly, eye to eye, staying on target. All that stuff you go over is some great stuff.
Also that horse on the DVD cover your on, boy that's a great shot, ears up, man that's pretty.

I will give you a call when we're in Marietta. Mark Styers ranch manger for Lance Griffin is a great friend of mine, he said you had dropped by there ranch before.
So that's where we'll be. Thanks Bill for making a great DVD, I sure want to bring a finished 6 year old, and a 3 year old I have just started on cattle, and get some help form ya, Also lets make this happen when I can help you with some work around your ranch, I love to work.

"This video is a great aide in helping cutting horse enthusiasts learn the finer points of the all so necessary basics of riding and showing cutting horses.  The presentation is quite easy to watch and learn from and keeps the viewer entertained as well as engaged in the learning process.  Bill Riddle is an excellent clinician and his easy going manner makes the participants feel at ease, yet challenges them to take his advice to see the benefits.

From the backward countdown while cutting a cow to his "eyeball to eyeball" technique, his approach is simple for anyone to understand and to use the very next time they are on their horse.  I would recommend this video to all cutters who want to improve their riding and showmanship skills.  After all, the basics presented in this video are the foundation building blocks for marking higher scores!"
