RANCHO MURIETA — The El Rancho Cutting Horse Association, an NCHA Affiliate, prides itself on promoting one of the last outdoor cuttings on the West Coast. Competitors come from all over the Western U.S. to compete at one of the premier cutting facilities.

This year’s event paid out a $102,000 to competitors. With over 761 entries, the facility was packed with athletes, horses and excited spectators. The exhibitors and their horses enjoyed beautiful spring weather in ranging from 70 to 80 degrees.

Carol Ward and crew go to great lengths to make the event a fun-filled show, with hosted exhibitor’s party, pancake breakfast and more.

A unique and inspirational component to this popular cutting results in the West Coast Equine Foundation receiving net proceeds from the event.  The Foundation is a charitable organization that supports a variety of equine related organizations including; college scholarships and grants to youth organizations that provide, therapeutic riding and support to 4-H and other equine related youth organizations.

Next up for the association will be the El Rancho Futurity and Mercuria World Series, Sept. 8-17.
