Northern Illinois Cutting Horse Association (aka ISCHA)

The Northern Illinois Cutting Horse Association is one of the longest-running affiliates of the National Cutting Horse Association, just behind West Central Texas. At the beginning of 2015, Mid-State Illinois CHA decided to dissolve and since most of the membership were also shared with NICHA, a new name of Illinois State Cutting Horse Association was chosen. Due to corporate requirements and other legal mumbo jumbo, we are still hosting shows under the NICHA banner until our business name is legally, officially changed.

NICHA hosts shows at Panther Creek Ranch in Congerville, Illinois, with future locations to be announced. You can follow ISCHA on Facebook for the latest news.
