Cutting: a western-style equestrian competition in which a horse and rider work as a team before a judge or panel of judges to demonstrate the horse’s athleticism and ability to handle cattle during a 2.5 minute performance, called a “run.”
21st Annual National Cutting Horse Association
Western National Championships
April 27 – May 6
National Western Events Center
For all our equine enthusiasts out there, the next 10 days at the Events Center are full of some must-see cow horse action. The 21st Annual National Cutting Horse Association Western National Championships have officially kicked off here in Denver!
The talent assembled at this year’s Western Nationals gets nothing less than a five-star rating. The Open and Novice classes will see NCHA Hall of Fame riders going head-to-head, including the likes of Tracy Barton, Pete Branch, Randy Chartier, Scott Martin, Russ Miller, Mike Wood and Guy Woods.
It is going to be a rainy weekend so if you are looking to get out this might be your ticket!
