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 rider who earns the most points on one horse in Series competition that month. The Series provides an opportunity for amateur-owner and junior riders to compete at higher levels and serves as a proving ground for many who aspire to represent the United States in international competition.
The Show Jumping Hall of Fame was organized to promote the sport of show jumping and to immortalize the legends of the men, women and horses who have made great contributions to the sport. The Show Jumping Hall of Fame is located at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky. Plaques honoring those who have been honored with induction into the Hall of Fame can be seen at the Horse Park’s Rolex Stadium. Mementos and artifacts from the sport’s history are on display as part of the Show Jumping Hall of Fame collection at the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) Wheeler Museum at the Horse Park.
The Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper Classic Series is sponsored by SmartPak, The Hampton Classic Horse Show, Kentucky Horse Park, The National Horse Show Association of America and United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA).
