It’s August and the summer is nearly over! Our approved shows held in Temecula and Hesperus CO offered our members great opportunities to go cut and still earn money for AzCHA year end awards. But there’s still A LOT going on for the rest of the year! But first, I’d like to thank the Board of Arizona Cutting Horse Association, including our Past President Katie Peterson, for their efforts this year and ensuring a great success after a tough 2020. All of our shows have been stellar with great runs, great people and great fun. And we aren’t finished yet!
What’s coming up for the second half of 2021 you ask? LOTS!!!! The AZCHA Oktoberfest (October 14-15-16-17) offers $500 added for NCHA classes and aged event classes in the Futurity, Derby and Classic Challenge! The End of Trail and Futurity (Nov 10-11-12-13-14) will round out the schedule. It’s the last chance to add to your year end earnings. THE BIG NEWS IS THAT THE CACTUS CIRCUIT WILL BE RUN DURING THE END OF TRAIL SHOW IN QUEEN CREEK AT HPEC! This is a huge feather in the AzCHA cap and promises to bring a lot of year end excitement to HPEC. More details to come so watch for our posts on Facebook and our website.
We have a special need for a new youth coordinator. We are especially grateful to our Youth Coordinator, Majerle Lamont, who took on the youth coordinator position and juggled a family and business as well! But she has requested that a new person serve in this vital position. The Youth Coordinator promotes activities for your junior and senior kids and helps to grow the sport of cutting forward. Please contact me or any board member if you are interested in serving in this vital job. Again, thanks to Julie Clarke and Scott Roseman who were our generous benefactors this year sponsoring fresh youth cattle. Giving kids a chance to show on fresh cattle resulted in great runs and the best all around experience for them.
AzCHA will be putting our photographer opportunity out to bid starting September 1 and bids will be closed October 1. More details on this in the near future.
Last, I would like to thank all of our great sponsors for their continued support of our great affiliate. The Rerun Riot, sponsored by Scottsdale Equine Reproduction LLC and Roo-Hide, have enabled us to set the bar high for competitiveness and excellence. Special thanks to all our Diamond, Gold, circuit and buckle sponsors. You make what we do possible. We will be adding a new sponsorship opportunity for 2022 and there will be more on that in the near future. Stay tuned for all the NEWS! More to come soon……
