Traveling on the fall breeze from Australia to little Burnet, Texas came another Australian Cutting Horse Group ambassador with a goal to strengthen the relationship between the ACHG and the American Cutting Horse Association to keep the sport in the spotlight.

Twenty-one-year-old Lilian Macrae traveled from Dorrigo, New South Wales in September to compete in cutting horse competitions across the state, with the help of her host Mike Crumpler and his wife, Janie.

The Burnet residents have cultivated a partnership between the ACHA and the ACHG, affiliates operating thousands of miles apart but sharing the same passions and goals involving youth in their mission to keep the cutting horse sport alive.

Ranchers and cowboys have been cutting cattle since the 1800's in order to separate them into specific herds for different purposes on ranches.
