Warm Western Welcome!

Western States Cutting Horse Association (WSCHA) was incorporated in the state of Colorado in August of 1950 with the purpose to interest horsemen in the breeding and training of their horses for the sport of cutting. And that is still our purpose today. Please join us at one of our events soon.

NCHA Western Nationals Wrap Up

The curtain has fallen on a very successful 2013 Western Nationals at the National Western in Denver and Western States Cutting Horse Association can and should be very PROUD of their role in the sponsorship, show management and competition. Many members had a great show and WSCHA was well represented in ALL the Finals. We had Champions - Pam Shaeffer, Non Pro - Reserve Champion- Kristin York, 15,000 - Nov/Non Pro - Reserve Champion - Gianna Pietrafeso, 2000 Limit Rider and multiple Top Ten Buckle Winners. Congratulations to All !!!!!!

Many thanks to Ron Pietrafeso who spearheaded bringing the event to Denver and the many fine members who supported the effort with time and financial support. It would NOT have happened without all of you. Robin Hayes led the organizing and Cheryl Callis and Sophie Feger helped with the operation of a very well received Ranch Rodeo which provided fun for participants and spectators alike. Overall, the Denver Western Nationals was a huge success !!!! Thanks again to all !!
