Grassroots Cutting at its Finest

Introduction to the ICHA

In 1984 an enthusiastic group of individuals decided to form the Interior Cutting Horse Association.  It was based on the Shasta Cutting Horse Association of California and the priority of the association was for the beginner and novice horse & rider.

Today our goal is to keep the interest and enjoyment in the sport of cutting going with consideration to the economic level at which our members can still participate in this challenging and exhilarating sport.  In addition, we maintain the priority to encourage new membership for beginners, novice horses and novice riders to the sport.  Our classes have been created to provide attainable goals for beginners to advanced members, with the consideration of allowing horse and rider as partners to progress to a more challenging level each year if the so choose.  We also offer youth classes for our family members.

Our shows are usually two day events and our goal is to provide fresh cattle for ALL classes.  The order of classes are drawn each the 1st day and the class order reversed for the 2nd day.  The order of go in each class is drawn each day.  We provide qualified judges for the benefit of our members to receive realistic and fair scores that are accumulated for year end awards.  We are very fortunate to have a good group of turnback and corner help that attend each show.  Our club has a fun bunch of members and social coordinators that always ensure the organization of a pot luck supper or appetizer hour and the end of the Saturday show day.  This event allows the member's time to visit, socialize and get to know each other.

We wish you the best of luck in attaining your goals.
