The NCHA Cutting Horse Show is an exciting competition consisting of horse and rider separating a particular cow from a herd. Riders have the opportunity to win an American Royal branded saddle.
One of the world’s fastest growing equine sports, Cutting offers tremendous excitement for horse, rider, and spectators alike! The competition consists of horse and rider separating a particular cow from a herd. Spectators will see a dance like performance between cow and horse. The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) provides the means by which contests are judged by maintaining a point system which gives definite credits and penalties while providing a fair basis for judging cutting horses and their riders. Saturday evening features a ticketed performance featuring our Open and Non-Pro Showcase, bridleless cutting, and exhibitor BBQ dinner. Sunday evening will feature a Saddle Shootout where the top rider will walk away with a branded American Royal saddle.
