KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When most people hear the phrase ‘cutting horse show’, images may be conjured which could not be further from reality. Horse cutting is a sport for specially trained horses in which a horse herding cattle cuts off a single animal from the rest of the herd. Thus, ‘cutting horse’.

KMZU’s Denny Campbell was able to chat with Joe Herzog, with the American Royal 2018 Cutting Horse Show, about this year’s show, set to be held this weekend at Hy-Vee Arena in Kansas City.
