We have reached the midway point of our summer season and so far it’s been a fun and exciting season! Our cows are great and I wish to extend a big thanks to Jerry for his amazing job handling them in the pens. We’ve had many great runs this year and when you check the standings you will see some very close and competitive classes.
As we approach the 4th show of the year please remember that in order to qualify for year-end awards you must have shown in your class at OVER 50% (4 shows or more) to be eligible. We have three (3) shows left: July 15th, August 19th and September 2nd so come out to Stewart’s Arena, show, and enjoy the fun! For complete qualifying rules and year-end awards please visit the Cuttin’ Loose website at www.clcow.com and view the 2017 CLCOW Official “Rulebook” found under Forms.
Dean Rebhuhn will be our judge at the July 15th show. Dean is a member of the NCHA Competition Committee and recently attended the NCHA judges meeting. Discussed and approved at the meeting was the issue of excessive jerking on a horse. Essentially no excessive jerking is allowed. The judge will whistle out the contestant for excessive jerking and disturbing of the herd. The judge will be penalized for not terminating the run. Please note that CLCOW shows are not NCHA approved though we do follow the NCHA rules.
In addition to our shows, a good time was had by all at the Jackpot sponsored by Gayle Wilkinson on May 20th. It was a great addition to the CLCOW summer schedule and successful for the Club. Hopefully there will be more to follow... CLICK HERE TO READ MORE....
THE ONLY CUTTING HORSE CLUB IN
Cuttin’ Loose Club of Washington was organized in 1984 to promote the sport of cutting and cowhorses. As a non-profit organization CLCOW is dedicated to providing members with an affordable place to show their horses and participate in club sponsored clinics and practices. By offering classes for all levels of riders and horses we have something for everyone and we encourage member participation, good sportsmanship, and mutual respect among both our members and non-members.
Cutters must work together as teams to showcase the talents of these extraordinary animals, as a result many lasting friendships are built within the cutting community.
