Whats a good way to get started in the NRCHA?
What are some things I should know about it?
See if you can find a good trainer who shows NRCHA. There are a lot of similarities to NRHA but there are also just as many differences. You will need access to cattle to work your horse on too. Like cutting you will need to learn to read cattle.
How would I find one?
Theres a place I work cattle around here every tuesday and thursday when I can. Its a group thing, their often practicing sorting though its a little harder to get to practice cutting and what not because they have the pen up for the sorters.
At the affiliate level you do not cut the cows. You do dry work (reining) and fence work (cow) Only the aged events have the cutting in there.
I can do fence work easy my horse hunts cows like its food.
is that your mare in the pictures?
Yes that is one of my mares. She has her COA in NRCHA also.
She's awesome I love seeing the pictures you post of her. How would I find trainers in my area?
Check out the NRCHA site. Also check out the NRHA site for trainers. Some NRHA trainers do NRCHA. I know mine does. Also if you can not find one listed on the national site look at the affiliate list and see which affiliates are close to you. Most will have trainer listings. If not then call the affiliate secretary and ask for trainers in your area. There should be some I would think. That area has several shows each year.
