USHJA Zone News 


Upcoming Zone Forums:
Zone 2
October 28 at the Zone 2 Finals in Harrisburg in the Exhibitor’s Lounge at 10:00 am.

Zone 5
The Zone 5 committee would like to congratulate Sophie Wilson, the winner of the 2007 $10,000.00 Zone 5 Scholarship Contest.  Sophie, a resident of Cincinnati, Ohio is attending Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Her winning essay depicted a childhood devoted  to horses.  She says "having a passion for horses has not only matured me, but kept me focused in life.  I may not be  a top competitor, or even own a horse, but I share as much love and passion as any other rider. Riding has truly developed me into a well rounded, responsible individual, and I believe this experience will ultimately make me a flourishing and successful college student." 

The committee would also like to congratulate and thank Pat Boyle and Showplace productions for a great zone finals horse show!
