The NCHA Board of Directors has met today to set a new date for the 2020 NCHA Futurity. The postponed event will now be held from the 27/28th October through to the 8th November 2020.

Under the circumstances the decision has been made to withdraw point 17 in the 2020 NCHA Futurity terms and conditions for the 2020 year. Point 17 of the T&Cs being: No horse will be allowed to start in the 2020 Futurity and Non Pro Futurity where it can be proven by the Board of Directors of the NCHA that the horse has been shown or judged in an Affiliated or Unaffiliated cattle working event prior to the Futurity.

As the Snafflebit Futurity entries have not yet closed, the entry deadline will be extended until September 1st 2020 with the normal late fees applying after this date.

For all events outside the Snafflebit, entries will still be taken but will incur late penalties as per usual.

The current program of events will be carried across to the new dates with the Select Sale being held on November 6th 2020 at this stage. Sale nominations will now be accepted until August 24th 2020. There will be new nomination forms available online, and we will contact those who have already entered individually.

We apologise to our members, sponsors and spectators for any inconvenience caused by the postponement of our event, however, the safety and well-being of our members and guests has been and remains our highest priority. We look forward to seeing you all from the 27/28th October - 8th November 2020 and experiencing some world class cutting here in Tamworth, New South Wales.
