Several important deadlines are approaching for summer opportunities to learn and compete with the United States Hunter Jumper Association. Cruise the list below to ensure you don’t spend your summer on the couch thinking, “If only I’d read Jumper Nation’s deadlines article more carefully!”
Thanks to the Gochman Family, each year, the USHJA Foundation will award grants to deserving Juniors that give them an opportunity to experience US Pony Finals.
This grant is awarded each year to up to three riders who exemplify the qualities that are most important in our sport—-sportsmanship, tenacity, and horsemanship—-and would otherwise be unable to go to Pony Finals. Applications close April 30, 2016.
