NCHAEnjoy Western Heritage in the City of Cowboys and Culture during the month of July at Will Rogers Coliseum in the Fort Worth Cultural District!

The National Cutting Horse Association was formed by a group of cowboys and ranchers with the main goals of promoting cutting competition, standardizing contest rules, and preserving the cutting horse's western heritage. NCHA held its first cutting in Dublin, Texas, in September 1946. Logo Credit:
