2021 has been a great year of rebound for AzCHA as we were able to resume our full show schedule AND host the Cactus Circuit Finals. That event was a great success and a feather in the cap of our Association. This is the time to notify NCHA that you want to designate our Region in the Cactus Circuit for 2022.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! The Awards Banquet is Tuesday, January 4 AND IT’S FREE……and we will again have that great tent and great food and GREAT awards……….we will recognize the BEST association in NCHA and all of our champions. THANK YOU to Kelsey Rodrique for her amazing work on this event. THANK YOU to Cindy Watkins for outdoing herself on the awards ONCE AGAIN. This Association is made great by its outstanding members.

For 2022, we are looking forward to the Rerun Riot returning once again and a HUGE THANK YOU AND SHOUT OUT to Parri and Jerry Longworth of Scottsdale Equine Reproduction Center LLC and Roo-Hide Saddlery for their support of this amazing event. I believe we can credit the Rerun Riot for the resurgence of the $35,000 Non Pro, the $15,000 Amateur and the $2,000 Limit Rider AND the newest addition to the line up – the $1,000 Amateur. Nurturing the beginning cutters is one of the primary missions of AzCHA and we are proud to fulfill that goal!

Next – we have been blessed with TWO incredibly generous sponsors who have stepped up to sponsor the fresh cattle for the youth classes. MANY MANY thanks to Julie Clarke and Scott Roseman for your support of these great kids.

As an additional note, as we are all facing inflation pressures in all walks of life, AzCHA is also facing increased costs in cattle and facilities. The Board of Directors is actively working to address these headaches and we will do all we can to keep costs from ever affecting the quality of the excellent events we produce.

I will be bringing everyone up to date on future doings and happenings………please let Lindsey Mills know if you are interested in sponsoring year end buckles for 2022…….WE HAVE ONE MORE CLASS TO INCLUDE – THE UNLIMITED AMATEUR. Our Board put our heads together and determined to have the Unlimited as a separate class with separate awards and added money.

Many Thanks to Mike Stevens and Cody Lamont on their valuable service to AZCHA and WELCOME to Penny Bailey and Dave Costello to the board………..HERE’S TO 2022 – HAPPY NEW YEAR!
