Due to Covid restrictions our banquet is
postponed until date to be determined.
We will soon release info for a great deal on the adjoining hotel.
Thank you Mike DeLange for helping us organize
a fun awards weekend for our members!
Many of our members will arrive the night before to hang out and celebrate before the following morning's brunch, so please feel free to drive up on the 30th!
We are currently monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will plan according to the safety guidelines in place at the time.
The banquet room does provide ample space to safely social distance and be regularly sanitized.
We are in the planning stages of hosting a show at the

We are also tentatively providing 4 year old classes,
an amateur tournament, and a full slate of classes all three days!
There will be plenty of stalls and hookups,

A great weekend for GLCHA at the MiRCHA show!
We loved seeing new faces from the cowhorse crowd along with
our regular cutters who made it out for one last GLCHA show this year.
Congratulations everyone on making it through an unusual, yet fantastic season!
While we do not have many photos from the weekend (our social media manager was busy showing with us and in the reined cowhorse classes),
Check out TM Photography and Design for all your professional winning pictures from the weekend!
You also have access to free videos from your runs through the MiRCHA,
but if you would like videos filmed straight on from the judge's perspective,
please contact Andrea Becker, our official NCHA certified videographer.

We are very proud of three of our GLCHA Youth who participated in the
MiRCHA costume class Saturday night.
Myla Hochstein and Ryann and Joey Grasman put together a couple of creative costumes!
Even the Grasmans' dog, Murphy, put his outfit on.
We are not sure how he felt about it, but Myla's horse "Spoon" and Ryann's horse "General" are definitely a couple of saintly geldings. Not to mention, they were each busy showing with us all day!
We would also like to congratulate our GLCHA members who
absolutely killed it in the reined cowhorse!
Starting off with Crystal DeWitt and her famous 2019 Congress cutting champion Oh Why Not who WON the whole Non-Pro MiRCHA weekend!
She received a saddle for the overall high score, a trophy for the Non-Pro Limited class,
and a buckle for the Non-Pro Herdwork. Way to go Crystal and Ivy!!
Congratulations Joey Grasman on winning the Youth Herdwork class!
Congratulations Courtney Overstreet on winning the 2 Handed Rookie class
and the Non-Pro Hackamore!
Congratulations Amanda Powell on winning the Non-Pro Select Boxing class!
Not pictured is Shelby Agnew who tied for first in the Non-Pro Boxing!
It is so awesome to hear that some of our cutters stepped into the cowhorse
(as well as the costume) pen and had a successful and fun time!
Thank you MiRCHA for having us! We hope to see y'all next year!

Rick DuBay Memorial Youth Scholarship
It was all about the youth with our
GLCHA Hall of Famer Rick DuBay.
In honor of his dedication to the youth and the cutting horse, the DuBay/Delange family has asked GLCHA to help put together a scholarship program to start next year.
We’re off to a great start with a lot of contributions to fund this program, and thanks to all those donors! In addition, we’re planning some fund raisers for next year to add to the pot so stay tuned, but more donations are always welcome to help keep it going year-after-year.
