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 News

Hello Cutters,

Just a friendly reminder that the NCHA Western Nationals will be held in Denver, Colorado this year (April 28- May 9th) The event will be held at the National Western Stock Show facility. this is a beautiful facility with lots of room for vendors, two big practice pens and a stall area connected to the show arena. Easy to get to, just off Interstate 25 on Interstate 70.

 There will be free coffee and donuts every morning at the practice pen between 5:00 am and 7:00 am.

Holmes Cutting Horses (Jim and Linda Holmes) have donated a yearling baby from the great horse Halreycious to be given away to one the youth contestants. Every youth walking to the herd will be given an entry ticket, at the end of the youth events a ticket will be drawn and that person will win the baby.

There is a ranch rodeo planned, named in the honor of the late Kenny Paul. Part of the proceeds from the ranch rodeo will go the Kenny's daughter Payton. Each affiliate can have one team. Should be a lot of fun and for a great cause. Great free lunches each day and three cocktail parties planned with free food and a cash bar.

Everyone will be met upon arrival by a hospitality person driving a gator to help move their tack, hay shavings or whatever, they will also receive a welcome bag of goodies. Plenty of RV hookups right next to the arena. This should be a great cutting and we are really trying to make it the largest Western Nationals ever, (2009 was the largest, held in Ogden with slightly over 900). Lots more giveaways to be announced later, hope to see you all there.
