NCHA Weekends count towards AQHA world champion shows

The American Quarter Horse Association is proud to sponsor the National Cutting Horse Association’s biggest event of the year, NCHA Weekend, June 3-5, in 25 cities throughout the U.S. and Canada.

NCHA Weekend is cutting’s biggest celebration of its grassroots participants, and this year, all of the shows are dual-approved. For the first time, points earned in designated classes will count toward qualification for the youth, amateur, Select and open AQHA world championship shows.

“We are excited to partner with NCHA on this full weekend of cutting in June,” said Tom Persechino, AQHA executive director of competition and breed integrity. “A large percentage of the horses that compete in NCHA are American Quarter Horses, and this nationwide weekend of cutting is a great opportunity to spotlight the crossover between NCHA and AQHA.”

As most cutters know, the AQHA world shows offer big prize money, so NCHA Weekend is a great opportunity to earn qualifying points. The amateur cutting finals at the 2011 Bank of America Amateur World Championship Show averages $60,000, and the open cutting finals during the 2011 Fed Ex Open World Championship Show offers nearly $70,000, with 100 percent of entry fees paid back.

AQHA classes will be offered at least one day at each of the NCHA Weekend shows and will usually be held as a class-within-a-class of the corresponding NCHA class. NCHA members who also have an individual AQHA membership and show an American Quarter Horse under its AQHA registered name will be eligible to earn AQHA points toward qualification for the 2011 AQHA World Championship Show, and the 2012 Built Ford Tough AQHYA and 2012 Adequan Select world championship shows.
