One of the world’s fastest growing equine sports, Cutting offers tremendous excitement for horse, rider, and spectators alike! The competition consists of horse and rider separating a particular cow from a herd. Spectators will see a dance like performance between cow and horse. The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) provides the means by which contests are judged by maintaining a point system which gives definite credits and penalties while providing a fair basis for judging cutting horses and their riders. Saturday evening features our Open and Non-Pro Showcase and bridleless cutting. Sunday evening will feature a Saddle Shootout where the top rider will walk away with a branded American Royal saddle.

Registration for the 2021 American Royal Hilary Watson Memorial Cutting Horse Show will be at the show. Working order will be set at the show.
This year we will be running two show pens. This allows us to have our amateur classes run during the day and earlier classes over all. Keep in mind, this will change the show order.
Fresh cattle practice will be held August 26th at 1:00 p.m. Sign up with Dava Scribner at [email protected].
Payouts written at the conclusion of the show.
