Competitors with the Palo Duro Cutting Horse Association stepped up to help a cutter in need during their April 25-26.

After learning that AQHA restricted judge and National Cutting Horse Association 4A judge Dewayne Stamper of Locust Grove, Oklahoma, lost his home to an electrical fire, the club’s show secretary, Cheryl Callis, announced that PDCHA would be raising funds to help assist the longtime NCHA member. In doing so, competitors and attendants contributed $5,600 and, as Callis pointed out, this was during a small show that only had about 100 entries.

"Thank you to everyone who pulled through for Stamper," said NCHA. "The members of the NCHA prove time and again what a great 'family' we have. Hats off to Palo Dura CHA!"

If you would like to contribute to Stamper’s fund, please contact the First State Bank in Locust Grove at 918-479-5001 or visit the GoFundMe account set up for Dewayne and Tonja Stamper.‪
