The NCHA Officer Nominating Committee has selected Jim Johnson, Lewisburg, W.V., and Steve Norris, Colorado Springs, Colo. to run for Vice President during their 2018 election.

Jim Johnson and  his family have been avid members in the NCHA since he bought his first cutting horse in 1983.

He has served on multiple committees as well as being a director for Region 4, Area 17. According to an article in Cutting Horse Central, Johnson feels he can bring diversification to the association, since he lives outside of Fort Worth and will be representing cutters in the East and the West

Johnson  has been involved in the industry since the early 1980’s and in 1988 he started producing cuttings at his farm in Lewisburg and have held them there for 30 years this May. He believes it is the longest continuous cutting at the same location, having been in existence for longer than 30 years.

Steve Norris, who has had numerous successes in establishing his own cattle company outside of Colorado Springs, where beside horses he has a cow/calf operation,  has been competing in the NCHA for 45 years and served as a director from Colorado in Region 1. He and  his family have supported the sport of cutting through sponsorship of awards and the NCHA Golf tournament.

Norris’ showing experience has been 95 percent at weekend shows, going up and down the road to mostly $200 and $300-added cuttings. He has three Novice Non-Pro World titles ad is an NCHA Non-Pro Hall of Fame member.

Norris has been a Region 1 Director, serving on various committees. He has also been a real estate broker and retired as a reserve deputy sheriff with the El Paso county sheriff’s Office after 15 years of service. He feels it is important for NCHA to provide Amateurs and Non-Pro cutters a class structure.
