The USHJA’s core area of expertise is the Sport Department, which is made up of knowledgeable equestrians who work closely with volunteer leadership to shape sport programming, like the International Hunter Derby Program, Pre-Green Incentive Program and Children’s and Adult Amateur Hunter and Jumper championships. Here, passionate equestrians put their knowledge of the sport and how competitions work to create, manage and execute competitive programming that enhances members’ experience of the sport. Knowledge of the sport, resourcefulness and a “can do” attitude are hallmarks of the Sport Department at USHJA. Learn more about our competitive programs
The Education Department complements the Sport Department, offering a variety of educational opportunities, like the Emerging Athletes Program, Horsemanship Quiz Challenge and the Trainer Certification Program. With education programming touching so many aspects of the sport, collaboration, a love for teaching, and an understanding of how teaching techniques can work effectively in the equestrian environment are critical in the Education Department.
