A year end saddle has been graciously donated by Mr. Charlie Ashcraft to be awarded to the 2015 Rookie of the Year! Now that’s a lot of incentive to get lots of time in the saddle! And for those of you who qualify for the rookie class but haven’t yet started, it’s not too late, come on out and join the fun. You might find yourself with a new saddle at the end of the year!



LubriSyn HA, proud supporter of the ACHA Youth, is donating 2 youth scholarships in the amounts of $1,000.00 and $1,500.00 to be awarded in July, 2015!

Rules for McDonald’s Shootout

For the current point year the Top Ten Junior Youth and the Top Ten Senior Youth will each compete in a one go round saddle shootout held at the American Championships. The rider must have shown at least 4 times at 1 affiliate or 8 times at any affiliate in the youth class in order to qualify for the shootout. The rider must compete in the shootout on a horse that he or she has shown at least one time in the youth class to qualify. The high scoring Junior and Senior Youth will each receive a McDonald’s Shootout Saddle.


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.
