FORT WORTH – The National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) is excited to announce that the Alberta and Canadian Cutting Horse Associations were selected to produce the 2021 NCHA Aurora Circuit Finals. The Aurora Circuit Finals is scheduled for October 9-10 at the Silver Slate Arena in Stavely, Alberta.  

“We are excited to be a part of something that is taking care of the weekend cutter, especially up here in Canada,” said Les Jack, Canadian CHA president. “I think the NCHA is paying attention, and this circuit finals is a way of paying extra special attention to those cutters.”

The NCHA Aurora Circuit Finals will invite the top 30 competitors from the Aurora Circuit to compete this fall in each of the NCHA weekend classes. For the 2021 event, all youth members who have designated the Aurora Circuit for this point year will be allowed to enter regardless of their place in the year-end standings.

“The Alberta and Canadian Cutting Horse Associations have done a tremendous job of growing and strengthening the sport of cutting in Canada,” said Jay Winborn, NCHA executive director. “Cutters from these regions will have the highest quality of show with these two associations working together to produce it and make it memorable for every exhibitor.”
