The NCHA is very pleased to announce the release of our new website as of next Monday 24th October. This website is cloud based and the first step in a series of upgrades we are undertaking to make the association more accessible for our members. It has a much greater capacity than our old site, better functionality and easier to use/navigate. This new site will be the face of our brand and link to our new database system iCompete, which is scheduled to start rolling out in March next year. From this new system, members will be able to make all payments and complete forms and show entries online as well as a vast range of other services we aim to provide. Keep looking to our Facebook page for more info as we move towards a better cutting future!

Due to the downturn in cattle numbers in Armidale we have been unable to secure sufficient numbers to run our show in November. We have access to 900 good quality head at Nowendoc so we will be relocating the show to Nowendoc. Nowendoc is located 70klms south of Walcha.
There is no stabling so you will need to bring tape yards, come and see me at the show for your stabling refund. Scratching cut off will remain the same, 8am Monday 31/10 so if you have already posted your entries and want to scratch please ensure you contact me prior to that time.
Any questions please call 67771116

The NCHA has 53 affiliates that conduct shows, practice days and clinics throughout Australia. All levels of competition (including youth classes) are catered for with over 200 shows throughout Australia. These shows occur in Brisbane, Melbourne and at Sydney Royals and culminates with the NCHA National Finals in Tamworth, New South Wales. High Point Awards are highly prized and competitors travel many kilometres to achieve success.
The showcase of Cutting is the NCHA Futurity held every May/June in Tamworth. The Futurity has grown into the richest three year old performance horse event in the Southern Hemisphere. It incorporates the best cutting seen anywhere, the largest country/western rural trade display outside the metropolitan areas, restaurants, bars, big screen, live country music entertainers, and the NCHA Select Cutting Horse Sale which auctions some of the best bred performance horses in Australia.
