The MCHA had a fantastic 2021 with many nice shows, an increase in entries, and lots of new people coming to our cuttings. Thanks to everyone that worked to make this happen. The MCHA is very fortunate to have the passionate support of 57 Ranches and JP Bell for promoting cutting and producing so many great shows. A special thank you to Bill Zaharia and Owatonna Motors for their large contributions to the MCHA. It was because of their outstanding support that the MCHA was able to offer so many wonderful events and awards this past year. The MCHA can be proud of the large number of our members that qualified for the World Finals in Ft. Worth; you all did us proud! Now it is time to start planning for 2022. The tentative show dates will be posted as soon as possible.

Here are the Year-End Winners from 2021 – Congratulations to you all!

Dave Scribner Memorial Cutting Weekend

The Celebration of Life for Dave Scribner was held October 8th at the Double F Arena in Hinckley, MN. It was a wonderful gathering paying tribute to one of the true great cowboys. Travis Grover lead the celebration; welcoming everyone and thanking them for coming. Kate Grover did a beautiful job of presenting the flag on horseback as the national anthem was played. Dave’s beautiful stallion that he rode so successfully right up to the end last year stood off to the side of the stage. Several people spoke and shared heartwarming stories and memories of Dave. The honor guard was there and gave a five gun salute and taps was played. Joe Studenberg had prepared a fabulous meal for everyone to enjoy. There were many people that worked very hard to make this event very special but Nicole and Joe Studenberg, Jolynn McDonald, JP Bell and Travis Grover definitely deserve a special thanks. If Dave was watching down from above, he would have been so honored. Thanks for everything Dave, we will miss you always…. Read More

THE ROOKIES ARE ROCKING IT!

The MCHA show season is off to a great start. There are lots of new people showing and it has been exciting to see the growth. The Rookie classes have been very large and four people have earned their Rookie buckles already. Congratulations to Andy Zaharia, Jeana Kunkel, Ella Armstrong, and Dylan Schauer. As so many affiliates around us struggle to have even a few cuttings, we are fortunate to have numerous shows scheduled. The MCHA appreciates 57 Ranches, JP Bell, for producing so many events for us to attend. Please take note that some of the cuttings are MCHA approved and count towards the MCHA year end awards and saddle shootout points and some are NCHA approved only. The dates listed on the MCHA show schedule are cuttings that are MCHA approved. Also, the MCHA would like to once again thank Bill Zaharia of Owatonna Motors for being such a great supporter of the MCHA. Lately, Bill has been keeping us all fed at the cuttings. Since many of the venues that we are showing at this year do not have food stands, he has provided huge spreads of food for everyone to enjoy. Thanks Bill!

The next MCHA approved cutting will be June 18th – 20th in Waterloo, Iowa.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Thank you to Todd and Stacy Nelson, Steve Sikkink, and JP Bell for all of their hard work to make this cutting possible. The MCHA Awards Banquet and fundraising auction was Saturday evening following the show. The Double F crew had made the room very nice with table clothes and flowers. JP Bell welcomed everyone and announced the new Board member: Leigh Gall, Jeff Pauly, Denny Benson, and Justin Namken. It was announced that Mike Hansen would fill the remainder of Dave Scribner’s term on the Board. Travis Grover gave a nice tribute to Dave Scribner and acknowledged how much we were all missing him. Brody Angstman did a great job as our auctioneer selling the donated items for the MCHA fundraiser. Between Brody’s jumping bean routine and Jack Bells antics; there were a lot of laughs. Thank you to everyone that donated and purchased items. The auction raised $2,640.00 for the club. Also, thank you to Erin Johnson for taking pictures of all of the award winners. Unfortunately, the Champion Buckles and Reserve Champion Spurs did not arrive in time but everyone will get them just as soon as possible. The third place winners received an embroidered halter and lead rope. Congratulations to all the winners. The MCHA is looking forward to a great 2021 show season.

The 2020 MCHA Show Season was a great success. So many fun shows were held with lots of great runs, camaraderie and laughter. Congratulations to the Year End winners. Information on the MCHA Awards Banquet will be posted as soon as it is available along with the 2021 Show Schedule.

Dear MCHA Members –

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Dave Scribner on December 24th, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer. There are those who claim to be cowboys, but there are very few who actually live the cowboy way. Dave was a mentor, a friend, and countless other things to so many people. You could tell that Dave loved his chosen life. He had worked so hard for it and had nothing given to him. He was proud of all the work he had done on his property with his own hands. He loved his family. He loved the horses he had dedicated his life to and buying and feeding cattle.

The cutting pen will never be the same without Dave out there helping everyone. We will miss his smile. We will miss the sound of his laugh. We will miss hearing him yell “all the way” when he was helping us in the pen. Thank you Dave for all you did for the MCHA and for everyone that had an interest in cutting or just horses. Our hearts go out to Dava, Michelle, and his beloved granddaughters.
Gone but never forgotten…..Rest in Peace Dave.

Highlights from 2020

The MCHA Fall Festival of Cutting was held October 9th – 11th in Winona, MN. Unfortunately many people had conflicts arise and the turn out was not as large as we had hoped for. Those that did attend had a lot of fun. The cattle were very good, more sand had been added to the show pen that made the ground really nice. There was a lively calcutta and super competitive Saddle Shootout Saturday night. Morgan Pliszka was the first to go in the $15,000 Amateur, $2,000 Limited Rider, $1,000 Rider division. She had a beautiful run on Fed Ex marking a 75 and setting the bar very high for the rest of the competitors. There were some more great runs marking 74’s and 73’s but no one could top Morgan. In the Non Pro, $50,000 Amateur, $35,000 Non Pro division it was Kate Grover on her always super consistent mare, Spoon LaDual, that bested the group with a 75. A huge thank you to RS Saddlery for their sponsorship towards the saddles. Also, thank you to all the helpers that stayed late to help the saddle shootout entries and who helped throughout the entire weekend. As always, you guys are awesome! A special thanks to JP Bell for working non stop to keep the show running smoothly.

Noah Edwards won the Sylvan Nelson Memorial trophy for the second year in a row. Kay Fasnacht earned her Rookie Buckle. It was just so much fun for so many people; that’s what the cutting is all about.

Jack Bell congratulates Noah Edwards on winning the Sylvan Nelson Memorial trophy.

Kate Grover scored a 75 on Spoon LaDual to bring home the MCHA Shootout Championship saddle this weekend! A huge thanks to this amazing team that helped it all come together, Dave Scribner, Bob Janssen, Justin Namken, and Travis Grover, couldn’t do it without you guys in my corners! Another big thank you to my support system on the other side of the fence! Thanks to the Minnesota Cutting Horse Association and RS Saddlery for sponsoring this beautiful saddle. And thanks to the MCHA for putting on such a great event. We all appreciate the hours of hard work that goes into these shows!
