Teton Ridge Joins NCHA as Title Sponsor of Major Event

A prestigious National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) event will now be sponsored by Teton Ridge.

Officials recently announced that Teton Ridge, a Western lifestyle brand founded by businessman Thomas Tull, would be the sponsor of the NCHA World Finals. 

“The sport of cutting and the NCHA have deep roots in the Western culture, and we pride ourselves in partnering with a brand like Teton Ridge, that share those same core values,” Jay Winborn, NCHA executive director, said in a statement. “Their passion and vision for the future of the Western performance industry are exciting, and we are looking forward to having them a part of this year’s World Finals.”

Teton Ridge will be the title sponsor of the 2021 NCHA World Finals, held Nov. 27-28 and December 1-4, during the NCHA Futurity show in Fort Worth, Texas. In addition to their title sponsorship, Teton Ridge will also provide our world finals competitors with a finalist jacket and individualized finalist poster to commemorate qualifying for the World Finals.

“Cutting horses are phenomenal athletes, and this sport completely embodies the western culture that Teton Ridge lives out each day,” said John Sanislow, operations manager of Teton Ridge. “The NCHA World Finals represents a group of athletes, both human and equine, who have shown unwavering commitment to the cutting and cowboy lifestyle, and we are thrilled to celebrate them through this sponsorship.”

In addition to being a title sponsor of the NCHA World Finals, Teton Ridge also was announced as the title sponsor of the National Reined Cow Horse Association Stallion Stakes and the new owner of The American rodeo. It also has made several high-profile bloodstock purchases in recent months, including NCHA Open Horse of the Year winners Smooth Talkin Style and Twice In Santiago; NCHA Futurity Open Champion All Spice; a $725,000 sales-topping yearling at the Fults Ranch Absolute Reduction Sale and several successful broodmares, including EquiStat Elite $2 Million Dam Sweet Abra.
