On November 13th and 14th, the 2010 Annual Hawaii Island Cow Horse Championship will be held at Anderson Arena in Kamuela (Waimea). Rick Drayer, a respected trainer and NRCHA judge from California, will be the judge for the competitions, including:

  • Snaffle Bit Futurity
  • Snaffle Bit Maturity
  • Super Horse
  • Two-Year-Old-in-Training
  • Cutting and Reining Championship Titles

HICHA Silent Auction

At the event this year, we’re holding a silent auction in which bidders will vie for stud services to top quarter horse stallions, a Kapohokine Zipline Adventures family pack, Island Princess candies and other horse and non-horse related items.

This event is free to the public. Please come by to watch the competitions and to participate in our silent auction. Proceeds benefit our Hawaii Island Cutting Horse Association for future events.

Hawaii Equestrian Property

If you are exploring the possibility of purchasing a Big Island horse property, please contact me. When I am not working on my East Hawaii ranch, my other favorite way to spend my time is helping buyers find just the right property where you can begin to build your Big Island dreams. If you have questions about farms, ranches or equestrian properties, I would be happy to help get you started in your research or property search.

  1. It’s great to see that the love and culture of horsemanship on the Big Island isn’t just a Parker Ranch phenomenon. Truly, our bond with horses weaves itself around us in countless ways on our Big Island.

  2. The fence competition was the most exciting horse event I’ve ever watched—thrills, chills and spills. It’s sure not for the faint of heart!

  3. We found a belt buckle in a “homeless” camp in Durango Colorado that has the inscription “Hawaii Cowhorse Championship 2 year old pleasure”. I was wondering if someone can tell me who won this buckle. I have the buckle and would gladly see that it is returned to the rightful owner. My daughters and I all rodeo and know how important buckles and awards are to the people who win them.
