Judging Contest


The National Cutting Horse Association proudly announces its seventh annual cutting horse judging contest sponsored by Holy Cow Performance Horses, starting December 1, 2023, and going through December 2, 2023, held in conjunction with the 2023 NCHA Metallic Cat World Championship Futurity at the Will Rogers Memorial Complex.  Again this year, the contest offers two divisions:  The Collegiate division and the Youth / High School (14-18) division.

It is the goal of the NCHA that, by making these judging competitions available, to make this event an investment in younger generations so they may be able to, one day, thrive from this experience and gain more knowledge of their own abilities as well as those from their equine counterparts. The future of the NCHA fully rests in the hands of those who will take on the legacies that will be left behind. 

The contest will include a rulebook test, penalty clip test, and the scoring of two sets of runs. Although the contestants will be judging cutting horses, judges from all disciplines are welcome to participate. Return the completed entry form to Emily Finch and pay online below or mail check or money order to the NCHA office by Monday, November 13, 2023.

Entry form and flier are available at this link.
