NCHA Cutting

Cutting is one of the most exciting horse sports to watch, and the Horse Show hosts a top-notch competition approved by the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA). In competition, horse and rider must work as a team selecting, or “cutting” individual heifers out of the herd and demonstrating their ability to keep it from returning to the group.  Horses must react with very little direction or instruction from the rider to receive top scores.  The horse’s lightning-fast, smooth maneuvers are breathtaking and awe-inspiring to observe.  Years of careful training are invested in each horse, fine-tuning the natural instincts that selective breeding has instilled.  This is one of the most exciting events for rider, horse, and spectator.
