Our club's mission is to promote the sport of Cutting by organizing events (Cuttings) at a reasonable cost for local competitors (Cutters) to show their horse's ability to work and control a cow. We develop interest and awareness of Cutting by sponsoring several jackpot shows per year at Marana Stockyards with classes for everyone from beginners to professionals. Riders compete for points toward year-end awards such as silver belt buckles and other prizes.
Founded in 1965 by a group of Tucson horsemen looking for a way to put on affordable cutting horse shows in the Old Pueblo area. Unfortunately, in the early 60’s the closest shows were in the Phoenix area, making it difficult and expensive for Southern Arizona horsemen and women wanting to learn or participate in the sport.
50 Years later, SACHA continues to put on seven to eight monthly jackpot shows a year, with the same goals that the original members set. The club has access to plenty of fresh cattle and a good arena which still makes it one of the best places in Arizona for beginners and experienced cutters alike to work their horses.
