Competitors from near and far contesting Hunter Valley Cutting Horse Club Show at Scone's White Park

IN a "first" for the new indoor arena at White Park, Scone will host the Hunter Valley Cutting Horse Club Show this weekend.

Horses and their riders are travelling from throughout NSW to compete for the money on offer, with some of the country's top combinations testing out the recently-unveiled facility.

The event kicks off on Friday, April 5, with the three-year-old pre-works for the futurity prospects.

It should be a great hit-out for them, too, leading into the Tamworth Futurity in two months' time.

There will then be a novice horse class in the afternoon.

Saturday, April 6, will see the introduction of a grass roots snaffle bit and grass roots one-handed cutting for people wanting to test the sport of cutting for the first time.

The open non-pro and open competitors are scheduled to compete afterwards.

Sunday, April 7, features the up and coming youth, along with the snaffle bit and novice non-pro participants.

The event is fully-catered for by the committee from Bunnan Hall and will allow onlookers to view this great show in comfort.

Entry is free.

And, organisers invite all horse enthusiasts to come down and watch these terrific equine athletes in action.
