In the old West cattle boom of the 1870s, one horse emerged as exceptional: the cutting horse. Today that same horse generates millions in prize money, but a quickly changing culture finds the heirs of those frontier people and horses in a fight to preserve the skills and values born on the range.
The history of cutting and its present orbits around one man, Buster Welch. The Cut follows Buster’s story from childhood to discover how the cutting horse culture inspired, motivated and sustained him. Viewers see his passion for preserving the values represented by the cutting horse as he passes his philosophies to younger generations. But will the old ways still win in this modern sport?
