Inaugural Scottsdale Event for NCHA
Scottsdale Recap

Cutting horse enthusiasts from across the West celebrated the return of a major National Cutting Horse Association event to Arizona by competing at the Scottsdale Nationals. Over 400 horses, their exhibitors and trainers took advantage to show at the air-conditioned WestWorld of Scottsdale, May 4th thru 10th, 2017. With $100,000 added money the competition could not have been tougher for seasoned veterans, and new cutters all competing for cash and prizes.

There is a lot of history for cutting horses in Arizona. Back in the 1970’s Arizona hosted the largest NCHA cuttings in America at the Maricopa feed lots. This new event in Scottsdale was the biggest NCHA cutting in the Grand Canyon State in many years, and is expected to grow. The NCHA is fully committed to growing the Scottsdale Nationals. There is tremendous potential to draw cutters from California, and the rest of the West.

The NCHA Scottsdale Nationals for 2018 promises to deliver with the best from this year, while still making improvements for exhibitors, vendors and sponsors.

Vendors Paradise at NCHA Scottsdale Nationals
The National Cutting Horse Association has launched a new venue to better accommodate Western and Plains States cutting competitors. The NCHA Scottsdale Nationals and the NCHA Denver Nationals will provide an opportunity for more weekend competitors in all divisions to test their skills at one or both of these premiere events.

The Scottsdale Nationals, which concluded on Wednesday, May 10, after a seven-day run at WestWorld in Scottsdale, Ariz., has already proven a great success with cutters from the West Coast to Canada to Texas, as well all points east and west of the Continental Divide, and Hawaii. Many owners and riders, like Christine King, owner of Reytheon, the horse Faith Farris rode to claim the Junior Youth championship, are also from Arizona.
