SCHOLARSHIP DONATED TO NATIONAL YOUTH CUTTING HORSE ASSOCIATION MEMBERS IN HONOR OF REYTHEON
The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) is proud to announce the addition of $10,000 in scholarships to be awarded to National Youth Cutting Horse Association (NYCHA) members at the 2021 NYCHA Regional Finals Championship in memory of Reytheon.
Reytheon (Dual Rey X Teninos Taco X Tenino San) was shown by numerous NYCHA members throughout his outstanding show career in Youth competition, limited age events and costume classes alike. With a lifetime earnings of over $216,000 and 257 Youth points, Reytheon certainly left his mark in the show pen.
The $10,000 donation in Reytheon’s honor to NYCHA Scholarships to be awarded at the 2021 NYCHA Regional Finals Championship will allow him to once again leave a lasting impact on NYCHA members.
“On behalf of the NYCHA program, I want to thank Christine King and everyone that is associated with Reytheon for this generous donation,” Mike Simmons, NCHA director of youth. “Our goals to continue to grow the NYCHA and the opportunities for youth scholarships could not be possible without contributions like this.”
The inaugural NYCHA Regional Finals Championship will take place in Fort Worth, Texas during NYCHA Youth Convention Week in July 2021. Champions from each of the eight NCHA regions will be invited to compete in both the Junior Youth and Senior Youth classes.
