New NCHA General Manager


On behalf of the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) and my fellow board of directors (BoD), it gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of JP Chevalier, as the new NCHA General Manager.

JP Chevalier will start on the 8th November and like past general managers (GM), he will report directly to me, the NCHA president. The board will continue to act as the association governance with endorsing oversight to the strategy, annual operating plan and periodic reporting interface, between president and GM.

As many of you know, the cutting horse association, here in Australia, was established fifty-years ago. Next year’s 2022 three-year-old futurity marks that events’ historical 50th year anniversary. We are thrilled to see the future of the NCHA progress with JP Chevalier’s leadership. We are confident that over the next foreseeable decade, our new GM has the capability and commitment to operate for the benefit of our association and membership at large. Recreationally he has been involved with cutting for 30 years and professionally he brings a wealth of experience in building relationships, business development, membership management, event operations, sponsorship and marketing expertise to the GM role.

Here’s what JP had to say on his appointment; “You bet I am thrilled to accept this position! I love the people, horses, lifestyle and look forward to working with the administrative team in Tamworth, to collectively serve and protect everyone’s interest in this formidable equine sport. We will positively engage our members, sponsors, strategic alliances, breeders, trainers, clinicians’, show committees, volunteers, judges, clubs and the greater national and international equine industry to ensure this multi-generational sport flourishes well into the future. Personally, I can’t wait to contribute to the NCHA, and I’m most honoured to represent all NCHA connections, thank you!”

Not only is the NCHA BoD happy to appoint the GM role, but the BoD also wants to acknowledge the resignation of Bridie George, current Operations Manager. We sincerely thank her for her efforts over the past 6 months, professionalism, and dedication demonstrated through the COVID19 interruptions and we wish her the best future.

Please join me in thanking Bridie and welcoming JP through their transition periods.
