Mary Jo Milner, reunited with Red White And Boon, took the Non-Pro World Championship for a record seventh time.

NCHA Cutting Academy
The NCHA Cutting Academy, a series of grass roots cutting clinics to be held throughout the country, will be launched on April 22 in DuQuoin, Illinois. Four clinics will be scheduled annually in different locations, with the emphasis on the education and presentation of showing horses.

The inaugural NCHA Cutting Academy clinic will start off with an overview by NCHA by Executive Director Jeff Hooper, and will continue with a session on judging and rules conducted by NCHA Director of Judges Russell McCord. The afternoon session will focus on live works, with evaluations and critiques of each ride by some of the industry’s leading trainers.

Julie Davis, NCHA’s Membership Services Manager, will also be on hand to answer questions relating to NCHA membership and Non-Pro and Amateur status.
