More Major NCHA Events Trying Leveling This Year

At least three major limited-age cuttings plan to offer leveled classes this year. Officials hope testing the leveling system proposed during last year’s National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) Convention will give insight into how well the class-restructuring system works.

UPDATE: NCHA Releases Revised Class-Restructuring Proposal

Updates to the class-restructuring proposal released by the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA) would establish a top 100 ranking in each division to establish a revolving door in cutting’s limited-age event divisions, allowing riders to drop down a level in competition.
