Aloha and welcome to the Hawaiʻi Island Cutting Horse Association’s website!
February 27, 2014: Our annual play day and membership meeting was a huge success! We had tons of participants, a handful of spectators, fired up cattle and fresh horses. The weather was awesome and everyone had a great time. We had a productive membership meeting and it feels like we’re ready to get the season started. Click on the entry blank link to the right for our first Jackpot Cutting on March 8. The rules page was also updated with the 2014 HICHA Participant Rules. Check em out!
Your 2014 HICHA board has been busy planning a great year for our membership. For information about our calendar of events, please click on the Calendar of Events link to the right. 2014 has gotten off to a great start. HICHA hosted Russell McCord for a NCHA judges clinic in Waimea. 20 participants spent two days learning the ins and outs of judging and showmanship tips. Mahalo to Russell for sharing his knowledge and expertise with us and to Carol Spierling, our HICHA President, for organizing the event.
Our first cutting event is a play day scheduled for February 22 at Parker Ranch in Waimea. The entry blank and membership application can be found here.
Anyone in the arena must be a member for insurance purposes. Your entry fee includes Lunch. Please spread the word to all interested riders as this is a perfect opportunity for newcomers to learn more about the sport and to meet new people. We look forward to seeing everyone at the play day on February 22!
