2021 Tenative Show Schedule Has Been Posted.

Tri-State Fairgrounds Still Requiring Special Check-In Procedures



FORT WORTH – The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) is excited to announce that the Panhandle, Palo Duro, and Big Country Cutting Horse Associations were selected to produce the 2021 NCHA Oiler Circuit Finals. The Oiler Circuit Finals is scheduled for October 15-17 at the Nolan County Fairgrounds in Sweetwater, Texas.

The Panhandle, Palo Duro, and Big Country associations have all agreed that they are going to make this the best show ever for their members.

The NCHA Oiler Circuit Finals will invite the top 30 competitors from the Oiler Circuit to compete this fall in each of the NCHA weekend classes. For the 2021 event, all youth members who have designated the Oiler Circuit for this point year will be allowed to enter regardless of their place in the year-end standings.

“All three of these affiliates have done an excellent job producing shows across all levels,” said Jay Winborn, NCHA executive director. “With Big Country and Palo Duro’s successes in the weekend realm and Panhandle’s experience in premier events, I have no doubt this is going to be a great event.”

Lisa Reese of Millsap, TX won our buckle class 9/5/20 riding Mo Metallic. She is shown with her trainer, Kristi Johns, receiving her buckle from PCHA board member Tyler Lewis. Congratulations, Lisa!

Jason Fenton won the Buckle class on August 1, riding Desde El Comienzo, owned by Josh and Amy King.  He is shown receiving his buckle from PCHA Awards Chairman Sherryl Courson.  Jason is getting ready to leave on a trip for the mission field and had told his friends, the King family, that he would like to win a buckle before he had to leave, so they entered him up on warhorse Desde El Comienzo (aka Jake From State Farm).  Thanks to Jason and the King family for coming to our shows and helping promote cutting!

Jessica Floyd marked a 216 on her horse Smooth Lil Kit Kat
