Workhorse is a kind of contest in which horses are asked to work on a cow in an arenas by carrying out certain manoeuvres, such as rotating the cow, turning the cow in a certain way, and carrying out a reiningmaster. The contest is divided into three parts, in which horses and riders are assessed according to their performances in a fencing design, flock work and fencing work.
The horses are assessed for precision, timings and reactivity, as well as the handling of a cow and her capacity to be able to ride into a flock of cows and to silently slice a cow out of the cows. When working with cow horses, the cow must do two or three different types of work in one or two sittings.
A meeting comprises a cleaning work in which a cleaning sample is made. Other is cow work, in which a cow is dismissed into the stadium and the cow is asked to be held first at one end of the stadium and then to turn back the cow without a wall.
Finally, the cow is maneuvered into the middle of the stadium and the cow circles in a narrow area. Three competitions also include a flock work meeting. Herding is similar to slicing, in which a cow is removed from a flock of cow and hindered from coming back into the flock by the action of horses and riders.
Herding is most commonly found in three-year futuristic and four- and five-year derbies. Horses are assessed on their cow controlling abilities, as well as their pace, stability and dexterity.
