Chubby Turner Chuffed With His NCHA Hall Of Fame Induction!

June 23rd, 2015 by CHTO

It was cutting’s night of nights! More than 400 people turned out with their buckles shining and boots polished to honor those who have not only had success in the sport, but  more importantly, who have put their heart and soul into making cutting flourish.

No-one fitted the bill more than long-time trainer Chubby Turner, from Weatherford Tx, who was one of three people inducted into the NCHA Members Hall of Fame.

Bill Riddle introduced his friend by emphasizing him as the most “enthusiastic” cutter and recognizing his contribution to the association over more than 4 decades.

Chubby was president of the NCHA in 2009 and 2010, and has served on numerous committees over the years. He revolutionized showing by helping to introduce the practice pens at competitions, and he developed the World Series cuttings which gave older horses more events and hence more value.

Bill also joked about Chubby as a trend setter in the sport, after turning the black cowboy hat into a must-have accessory!

Chubby gave an emotional thank you speech to close out the night, saying his induction was his greatest achievement in the sport yet.
