The Show Jumping Hall of Fame conducts the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series. The Series hosts separate divisions for junior and amateur/amateur-owner riders in two Conferences and follows Grand Prix rules and specifications. Each month, the Series honors the one rider who earns the most points on one horse in Series competition that month. The Series provides an opportunity for amateur, amateur-owner and junior riders to compete at higher levels and serves as a proving ground for many who aspire to ride in international competition.
