The Northern Arizona Cutting Horse Association (NACHA, Inc.) came to be in the early 1990’s as the vision of Founders Cliff Schlosberg, Swaze McCrain, Dave Costello and Skeeter Hughes.
In the early years, the cuttings were held at the old Prescott Livestock Auction located on Highway 89, in the famous “Dells” area, surrounded by magnificent boulders. The show office was a pickup truck parked under a massive shade tree.
Later, in 2007, the club moved to the new Prescott Livestock Auction facility, off Perkinsville Road in Chino Valley, where it continues today.
The cutting arena that is still in use came from the old Marana cutting facility which had two arenas. NACHA members dismantled and transported the materials back to Yavapai County and rebuilt into today’s facility. The entire process took only a matter of a few days.
Over the years, a beautiful, shaded pavilion was erected, along with an announcer’s booth, and show office. All of these were donated by generous supporters.
NACHA prides itself on its grassroots and continues to strive to keep its fun, friendly and family-oriented programs committed to the long-standing cutting traditions of American ranchers. Our loyal cutters come from all parts of Arizona to enjoy our April to mid-October show season.
The club takes pride in providing good ground, good cows and good people. Many accomplished cutters got their start in the cutting world at NACHA shows. The club is proud of its nearly 30 history and excited to continue the tradition well into the future.
We offer an outstanding awards program and banquet each year. Come join us.
