The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) is excited to welcome the return of the NCHA Great American Insurance Group Summer Cutting Spectacular held July 16 through August 5 at the historic Will Rogers Coliseum in Fort Worth, Texas.
The Summer Spectacular is the final jewel on the NCHA Triple Crown and is contested over 21 days with more than 2 million dollars up for grabs! The Summer Spectacular is a family-friendly event with something for everyone to enjoy including competition, shopping, and children’s events.
In conjunction with the Summer Spectacular is the NCHA Holy Cow Performance Horses Youth World Finals held July 25 through July 27. During these three days, 30 National Youth Cutting Horse Association (NYCHA) members from around the United States and Canada will vie for the Junior and Senior Youth world champion titles.
