Thank you, MCHA Board of Directors

Welcome to the Montana Cutting Horse Association.  The purpose of the MCHA shall be to encourage education in equine activities, interest in cutting horses and to promote the sport of cutting in and around the State of Montana.

2022 Memberships are OPEN, and available on our website! When purchasing your membership and planning your summer events, keep in mind this new rule set by the MCHA Board of Directors last week at their planning meeting! To qualify for the year end awards, you must have attended and competed at three in-state MCHA cutting events. Some fun new locations set this year in our beautiful state.  Looking forward to announce some fun, new and exciting awards given for our top three in our standings.

Year End Recap

What a year we had, here is a little recap of our year end show. Check out these photos again if you didn't catch them on our MCHA Facebook page. Congratulations to our winners, and all members that were able to compete and be a part of our events.  Thank you for being an  asset to our association, we are thankful!
