What is Cutting? | Youth Cutting


The National Youth Cutting Horse Association was established to provide support, encouragement and opportunities for young cutting enthusiasts.

Each year, numerous stallion owners donate a breeding service for their stallion to the NYCHA Stallion Service auction. Proceeds from this fundraiser allow Youth training clinics to be held throughout Australia each year.

The NYCHA would like to thank each and every stallion owner that contributes to this annual fundraiser. 

Youth Clinics 8/24/2016

I would like to extend a huge thank you to the participants of the recent Youth Clinic held at Loomberah, NSW. 

Thank you to Steve and Michelle Honey for again holding the event at their beautiful property. To Peter & Jacinta Shumack for organising. To trainers Steve Byrne, Phil Dawson, Trent Smith and Dean Holden for sharing their expertise and guidance with the kids. To the cattle suppliers for the donation of the cattle for the two days. To the kids that attended to learn and grow and their parents for bringing and supporting them, and also to the amazing stallion owners that continue to support the NYCHA every year and remain the main funding of the organisation and it's activities.

Southern Cross look forward to holding a Youth Camp in Area 10 in the coming future and will notify interested participants when information comes to hand.

If you have any questions or ideas on the development of the Youth of the NCHA please do not hesitate to contact me.
