Candidates for the 2023 NCHA Vice President election have been announced


FORT WORTH – The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) has announced the two vice president candidates running for election in 2023: Skip Jones of Amarillo, Texas, and Barnwell Ramsey of Huntersville, North Carolina.  

Jones has been an NCHA member for 25 years, serving on multiple committees and task forces, including five years on the executive committee. He has been president of the Panhandle CHA and West Texas CHA for 12 and 22 years, respectively. Jones served on the LAE Producers, Non-Pro and Open Show committees for six years each, three of which he was chairman of Open Show. He also has served on the Competition committee and currently sits on the Governance committee. Jones’s goals are to continue to develop cutting across the weekend level as well as “work on rules and bylaws for clarity and simplicity. I want to continue to help our executive director and very capable staff develop and grow this association that has rewarded [my wife and myself] so richly.”

An NCHA member for over 20 years, Ramsey has been involved in multiple aspects of the industry from showing at both the weekend and limited age events across the country, and breeding and owning cutting horses. He has served on both the Finance and Amateur committees for six years, serving as chairman of the Amateur committee for three and vice chairman for two. Additionally, Ramsey is an active director from North Carolina and has served in this role for six years. Ramsey believes the NCHA is a strong organization and says his goals with running for vice president include “to keep the NCHA on the continued path of excellence. The road to success is always under construction, and that road runs through its members. I want to continue building that road.”

Additional information on each candidate, including their background within the industry and their vision for the future of NCHA can be found online at
