Foote – MCHA Vice President for 2015
Longtime Montana cutting horse enthusiast,
competitor, supporter and breeder, Kathy Foote, of
Livingston, Montana, was recently elected Vice
President of the Montana Cutting Horse Association.
Kathy has lifetime NCHA earnings of approximately
$250,000.00, and her husband, Jonathan, is a past
executive member of the NCHA, as well as having been
inducted into the NCHA Member’s Hall of Fame. Kathy
rodeoed throughout grade school, high school and
college, and came from a ranching background in the
How it all began: Kathy
attended a wedding of one of her girlfriends who was
marrying a son of Jonathan’s. Kathy and Jon started
talking at the wedding, and he invited her to come
over and try a cutting horse. Kathy worked her first
cow and was immediately hooked. Jon had not been
cutting for several years because of a back injury,
but he let Kathy show his mare, Lady Tivio Barred at
the upcoming cutting in Big Timber. Jonathan knew
Kathy was a cowgirl and was convinced that she would
win the $500 rider on her very first trip into the
herd, even though she had only been riding cutting
horses for a month. She lost a cow that day … but
got the feeling of competition and away she went.
