2021 Hans Hansma Youth Scholarship Winners


Established in 2000 in memory of the late Hans Hansma, the fund has awarded close to $100,000.00 in scholarships since its inception. Hans Hansma’s legacy continues in the equine industry including his leadership in the many equine clubs and associations he had a hand in establishing. The development of his Quarter Horse lineage continues to show up as the foundation of many successful breeding programs, and his family members contribute greatly to the equine industry as we know it today.

1st Place - Chase Pallesen riding Clays Little CD owned by Kaila Stewart was awarded $2500 and a buckle sponsored by Winston Hansma & Danny Connelly Motes.

2nd Place - Teresa Lukacs riding Reyligious owned by John Lukacs was awarded $1500 and a buckle sponsored by Gerry Hansma & Sandy Hansma.

3rd Place - Wyatt Coates riding My Own San Lena owned by Jason & Christine Hanson was awarded $1000 and a saddle pad sponsored by Marc Ascione.

ALL YOUTH COMPETITORS - Krystina Lynn Photography has also graciously donated ONE free competition photo from this weekend. Please contact her directly with the image number you would like to receive your prize.

The ACHA Sponsor Cutting is a new initiative, and we felt it was a great success and fun was had by all! Each ACHA Event or Class Sponsor had the option to nominate a rider, and the ACHA offered to find them a horse to ride, as well as provide one lesson with a local trainer. If they didn't have a nomination, we chose a representative for them. Our other sponsors were recognized as well, and event tickets were provided to all sponsors or their representatives so they could enjoy the event while also enjoying drinks and appetizers.


Special shoutout to Ken & Karen Mix of K&K Livestock Co. for providing beautiful halters for the finalists of the Never Won A Buckle, as well as the 2021 Sponsor Cutting champion, and both riders who were new to the cutting pen!


As always, we need to give a huge thank-you to the Alberta Cutting Horse Association sponsors this year. They supported us through the last two uncertain years, and you can see, their contributions go a long way to support ALL cutters.
