About the 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.

About the Barrel Race

Barrel Racing contestants compete against the clock to run a cloverleaf pattern around three barrels. The horse and rider are allowed a running start and time is recorded by a highly accurate electronic eye. The contestant may begin on the left or the right side; however, the contestant is disqualified if he/she turns incorrectly around a barrel. Touching a barrel is permitted, however knocking over a barrel results in a five second penalty.

A good Barrel Racing horse must possess not only speed and agility, but also a good temperament and a big heart. American Quarter Horses are often favored for this event because of their ability to sprint short distances and turn on a dime. American Paint Horses, Appaloosas, and Pintos are also popular mounts. The majority of contestants in barrel racing are women, but quite a few male competitors have also made their mark in the world of barrel racing.

2017 Barrel Racers can enter the Paint Barrel Racing Incentive Program (PBRIP) sidepot for a chance at an additional jackpot with $500 in added money. Click here for PBRIP rules. Exhibitors must be entered in the Open both days of the Barrel Race to be eligible to enter the PBRIP Jackpot.

About Ranch Sorting

Ranch Sorting is a western-style equestrian sport that evolved from the common ranch work of separating cattle into pens for branding, doctoring, or transport. Quick horses, determined riders, and a touch of luck are the main components of a winning team in this sport. Each team includes two riders. Cattle are numbered from 0-9, the announcer draws a number to begin with, and each team then has 60 seconds to sort the numbered cattle in numerical order- increasing in sequence from the starting number. Teamwork is the key with both riders working in harmony to sort out the correct cattle and drive them to a pen while keeping the wrong numbered cattle back.
