The 2013 AQHA-NCHA Weekend offers cutters the opportunity to qualify for AQHA world championship shows.
AQHA is proud to sponsor the National Cutting Horse Association’s largest event of the year, AQHA-NCHA Weekend, May 30 – June 2 in 25 cities throughout the United States and Canada.
AQHA-NCHA Weekend is cutting’s biggest celebration of its grassroots participants, and this year, all of the shows are dual-approved. Points earned in designated classes will count toward qualification for the youth, amateur, Select and open AQHA world championship shows.
As most cutters know, the AQHA world shows offer big prize money, so AQHA-NCHA Weekend is a great opportunity to earn qualifying points. The amateur cutting finals at the 2013 Bank of America Amateur World Championship Show averages $53,000, and the junior and senior cutting finals during the 2013 Open World Championship Show offers more than $100,000 combined, with 100 percent of entry fees paid back.
AQHA classes will be offered at least one day at each of the AQHA-NCHA Weekend shows and will usually be held as a class-within-a-class of the corresponding NCHA class. NCHA members who also have an individual AQHA membership and show an American Quarter Horse under its AQHA registered name will be eligible to earn AQHA points toward qualification for the 2013 AQHA, the 2014 Built Ford Tough AQHYA and 2014 Adequan Select world championship shows.
