Greetings AZCHA!

It’s difficult to imagine that the 2022 AZCHA show year is over and in the books! Congratulations to all of those that worked hard, competed, and strived to reach goals! Our Cactus Circuit Regional Finals was a success and it was great to see unfamiliar faces! The party and awards presentation Saturday evening was a good time and a reflection of how everyone cheers and roots others on! I have been a member of AZCHA for more years than I want to count, and this association is a family of friends and it’s easy to see why it is a powerhouse and has been named affiliate of the year several times! We will continue to strive for excellence in the future and produce great shows.

The world finals are almost here and we want to congratulate all of our members that are entered and wish them luck! I haven’t counted, but the number of entries in the world finals that have participated in our shows is incredible, which only tells us that Queen Creek sees some of the best cutting horses in the world! Hope to see everyone at the world finals and if you can’t go, make sure to tune in and watch the webcast!

I want to thank our sponsors for their invaluable support in 2022. They made it possible for new innovations, including the WOW and Cactus Circuit Finals, and help keep the association in good financial position in a time of ever increasing costs. A huge shout out to the Re-run Riot Sponsors- Scottsdale Equine Reproduction Center LLC and Roohide Saddlery! Their support of this event has given the AZCHA a huge boost and promotes the sport we love, cutting. Their great idea started in 2012 and we really thank Parri, Jerry, and John Bergen!

The association and shows couldn’t run without our great board of directors. I want to thank the board and my vice Dawn Chapman and our numbers guru, Beth Sullivan. Don’t forget, voting for board of directors is going on now. I also want to thank our amazing show staff: Kathy, Malinda, Shea, Becky, Barb, and the cattle handlers led by Danny and Kasey Tomerlin. These folks keep our shows running like a well oiled machine.

Stay tuned for more great things to come!

AzCHA President
