A uniquely Australian sport which combines the sport of Cutting and cowherding using a figure eight patterned course with a finishing "gate", all of which evolved from the old practice of selecting individual cattle from a large mob and driving the beast to a separate holding area, achieved through the skill of the horse and rider in blocking the attempts by the beast to return to the mob. An ACA approved judge awards scores for performance in the cut-out and also for skill and control in completing the course in the arena. In a large event, there may be several rounds, and the highest aggregate score will become the winner.
