Rules for ACHA Double Judged Events:

  • ACHA double- judged events will be comprised of one show wherein two judges independently score each entry.
  • The purpose of the double- judged show will be to allow contestants to potentially earn monies under multiple judges, scoring separately, on one run.
  • Scores under both judges will be posted and announced after any reviews and after the class is complete.
  • There will be one set of points distributed for ACHA standings as described under Annual Awards in the ACHA rulebook. For point distribution, the scores of each judge will be combined for the purpose of allotting said set of points.
  • Double-judged events will be allowed to charge an additional office charge, as well as an additional entry fee. The latter is to be jackpotted at 100%. No additional cattle charges will be approved. All monies, including added monies, will be split and paid out equally under each judge.
  • Each double judged show will count as one show in accordance with Standing Rules 26A and 26E.
  • As with all ACHA contests, earnings toward year-end awards must be accumulated from events in compliance with Rule 16C of ACHA Standing Rules and Bylaws.
  • A show producer or affiliate will be allowed to hold four one-day double-judged events each year between October 1 and the following September 1.

Friendly reminder to all ACHA members, and rule change notice -

  • Rule 16. of the ACHA Standing Rules and Bylaws states that: ALL members of the ACHA are responsible for determining class eligibility for themselves and all horses they own or
    exhibit as determined by the combined records of all cutting horse associations on the first
    day of the current point year (October 1st).

  • Rule 16F: The Limited Aged Event point year shall be January 1 to December 31, to coincide with the calendar year of the horse's aged event eligibility.


ACHA Mission Statement

In continuance of the American West, and the ranching lifestyle, the American Cutting Horse Association strives to promote cutting horses as a competition sport. The goal of the ACHA is to promote the breeding, training and sport of these great horses in a competitive setting.

By the establishment of rules of conduct for cutting horse contests and the keeping of complete and accurate records of these contests, the ACHA seeks to promote and regulate the showing of cutting horses.

There is a place in the ACHA for contestants and their horses at any level and any goal. ACHA membership consists of people of diverse backgrounds and talents and encourages individuals, families and companies to become involved in the sport of cutting.
