ACHA Weekend Cutting at Nueces Canyon Ranch

I just returned from a great 3 days at Nueces Canyon Ranch Resort near Brenham, Texas. I stayed at their wonderful Inn and photographed the Annual ACHA weekend Cutting. If you are a cutting horse enthusiast in Texas, this is a must visit location. It is owned by the family of Trainer Constantine Caloudas and includes a great cutting pen with many stalls and places to park large rigs. For those traveling without horses there is a 12 room Inn with very nice rooms. Take your cell phone as there is no phone service in the rooms, and don't plan on watching TV. There is TV but reception is poor. There are too many things to do to be watching TV anyway, this is a retreat, not a continuation of your home life anyway.

Saturday Night a Louisiana Cutter hosted a real Cajun crayfish boil (with over 400 lbs of crayfish) with all trimmings (Red Potatoes, Corn on the Cob, cooked onions, and smoked sausage). The cutting horse show was over at about 5pm on Sunday and I was on my way back to Dallas after a stop at Starbucks for provisions. I will post a photo or two tomorrow.
