NCHA number is 202. That is a what card players
would call a “tell”…..you can “tell” just about how
long Jim Brown has been a member of the National
Cutting Horse Association. Early. Try 1972. He has
been an NCHA member every year since.
A native of the Golden State, Jim
was still living in sunny California. He had some
horses and had been playing around with horses in
general and met a man named Art Miller, a cutting
enthusiast. Jim purchased his first cutting horse
from Art, “Albers Jessie” a gray gelding that had
won a fair amount of money.
He was 16 or 17
when Jim bought him – Jim followed the advice of
another cutter about purchasing an older, seasoned
horse to learn on.
es for a month. She lost a cow that day … but
got the feeling of competition and away she went.

Montana Cutting Horse
Association's "Rerun Cattle Win A Saddle"
In the beginning, I had no idea I would
be a saddle winner!
Andi (Andrea James) got me on my first
cutting horse in October of 2013, just a few
months after we met. Steve (James) has
taught me everything I know about cutting
and Andi has been my support and traveling
partner. And we can't forget Mavis (James),
she keeps everything at the ranch alive
while we are off showing. Without these
people I wouldn't be where I am today!
I started off the season showing Smashing
Aristocrat at NCHA Days in June and won the
average trophy in the 2000 LR there. We then
headed for Whitehall and that is where I
learned I was in a class that was in the
rerun cattle win a saddle running. I didn't
own my own horse so the only class I could
show in was the 2000, so we weren't sure if
the saddle would be in reach or not. Andi
and I love all the Montana people, they
always welcomed us and took us in like
family everywhere we went. We enjoyed it so
much that we traveled to the rest of the
Montana shows. I even talked Andi into going
11 hours to Kalispell. Tom Campbell and Tim
Stryker were always there to help, and we
appreciate them and all the other trainers
who are willing to help all day long show
