President's Bio

Hello Cutters!!

For those of you that don't know me, my name is Vanessa Michels. I am fortunate to be married to a wonderful man, Gregg, who supports me in this crazy sport. Hoping to see him in the show pen this year.

Although I did not grow up with horses I was that little girl that always wanted a horse of my own. Noted by my copy of Black Beauty that is very dog eared.

I was a young mother when I bought my first horse. I loved trail riding and still do. I was looking for a sport to keep my horse legged up in the winter and was given the opportunity to ride a cutting horse. That was all it took. Its been my life passion ever since. Cutting can be a very humbling experience, but when that great run happens there is nothing like that rush of being one with your horse.

Looking forward to 2019!!
Vanessa Michels

President's Letter


Greetings Fellow Cutters,

With 2 shows under our belt the season is off to a good start. We welcomed new
cutters and those making the trip from down South.

The first Buckles Series Show will be held at Cathey’s Ranch hosted by SOCHA on 5/25/19. I would encourage those that can attend to do so. We are hoping this will encourage inter-club showing. CRCC’s first Buckle Series Show will be held on 6/8/19. You must show in all 4 shows to be eligible for the buckle. More information is on our website at

For those that are trying to qualify for Top 5 in the Challenger classes Central Oregon Cutting Horse Association (COCHA) is now participating in NCHA Challenger for our region. CRCC is still in need of a couple more sponsors @ $100.00.

We are asking that you please pay your entry fees before you show. This would help the office out and would be appreciated.

Please remember there are 2 fresh cows per cutter. If you need a 3rd cow please try
to use a rerun. This leaves fresh cows for those that draw later in the herd.

Deadline for entries is SUNDAY before the show. We are doing a early entry
incentive. If you enter before Sunday your name will be entered into a drawing
for an 8x10 photo of you and your horse. Photo is being donated by Barbara Semmel, of Dun Shot It Photography. Drawing will be held at final show.

If you have any concerns or feedback please feel free to reach out to me or any board member. We are always looking for volunteers to help set up and take down at shows.

Remember this is your club!!! Keep on Cuttin'
