NCHA - The New Website and Ads
Why Advertising?

We always appreciate your feedback and will continue to make strides to have the website be as functional and comfortable as the old one was for our users.

The old NCHA website was built in 1999 when most everyone’s web experience was new. Think about what your cell looked like in 1999.

One of the important new features our organization now has available on the new platform is the ability to deliver targeted advertising for our sponsors and partners.

As done for listeners and viewers on television and radio paid advertising allows them to deliver free programming. This works because it helps pay for the very existence of the outlet. Otherwise, in order to simply exist, these outlets would need to charge their audience. This is why other media outlets such as SiriusXM or HBO don’t need advertising; because they charge their audience to have the privilege of receiving them.

NCHA History
Fast-forward to 2006, and the contestants at the NCHA Futurity will be divvying up more than $3.7 million--over a hundred times the offering of that first year. Total purses at NCHA-approved shows now exceed $39 million annually.

In the beginning, there was the horse . . .

Nowadays, cutters compete for millions of dollars in prizes.
It wasn't always that way.

A nineteenth century cowboy transplanted to the present day would probably be perplexed by the modern world's high-tech marvels. But he'd still feel right at home at a cutting horse show.

When American cowboys of the 1800s began using their best horses to separate individual cows from a herd, it was part of the daily job. They would never have imagined cutting as one of the world's most popular equine sports. But each year, thousands of cutting events--from Austin to Australia--attract riders aged eight to eighty.

Message from NCHA President Chuck Smith
There appears to be some confusion concerning the action taken by the Executive Committee at its August 22, 2016 meeting to adopt a recommendation from the Non-Pro/Amateur Review Committee relating to the modification of the existing amateur exception rules effective in the 2017 point year. I am sending this correspondence to all directors in order to clarify any confusion that may exist.

The Amateur 10yr/$15,000 Exception Rule, which is currently in the Rule Book, allows past trainers who have trained astride in other equine disciplines to return to the Amateur division if certain requirements are met. That exception was recommended in 2009 as part of the Non Pro Amateur Task Force Proposal, was vetted by the Amateur Committee, was recommended to the Executive Committee by majority vote by the Amateur Committee and has been in the Rule Book since 2010 (See page 152 of the NCHA Rule Book).

TAKE THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED TO THE CALGARY STAMPEDE CUTTING HORSE FUTURITY, PRESENTED BY WRANGLER
On October 12-16, the Calgary Stampede will welcome hundreds of competitors from across North America to the annual Cutting Horse Futurity, presented by Wrangler. Some will fly in. Others will come, hauling horses from thousands of miles away. The end goal is the prestigious competition in the state-of-the-art Agrium Western Event Centre. But getting here, and enjoying the city and surrounding countryside can make the experience just that much more memorable.

We spoke with two of the top competitors from 2015 about the competition, and the importance of enjoying the scenery along the way. Russ Elrod, the 2015 Open Futurity Champion, resides in Terrebonne, Oregon. Carl Gerwien, the 2015 Non Pro Futurity Champion, lives just outside of Calgary near the town of Nanton, Alberta.
