Thousands of cutters enjoy AQHA NCHA Weekend

AQHA NCHA WeekendPreliminary figures indicate that AQHA NCHA Weekend attracted nearly 6,200 entries across North America on June 1-3.

Shows were held in each of NCHA’s 25 Areas across the United States and Canada, making it the largest cutting of the year.

Once results from all the shows have been verified, it’s expected that overall entries will show an increase of about 11% over the 2010 NCHA Weekend shows. The event was not held last year, due to the outbreak of the EHV-1 virus.

Unofficially, the top five shows for participation appear to be Graham, Texas with 540 entries; Bakersfield, California with 420; Moses Lake, Washington with 373; Batesville, Mississippi with 352; and Farmington, New Mexico with 339.
