Reserve Citizen Airman horse cutting competitor

Master Sgt. Tania McGuire, 349th Force Support Squadron first sergeant, prepares her horse for a cutting practice at her home in Placerville, Calif., prior to a competition later in the day on Sept. 2, 2018. Cutting is a western-style equestrian competition in which a horse and rider work as a team before a judge or panel of judges to demonstrate the horse's athleticism and ability to handle cattle during a ​2 1⁄2 minute performance, called a "run." Each contestant is assisted by four helpers: two are designated as turnback help to keep cattle from running off to the back of the arena, and the other two are designated as herd holders to keep the cattle bunched together and prevent potential strays from escaping into the work area.
