Show Jumping Hall of Fame to Open at Kentucky Horse Park
The Show Jumping Hall of Fame and Museum is moving from its long-time home at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Fla., to its new home at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Ky.
Agreements with both the Kentucky Horse Park and the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) will give the Hall of Fame a presence at two locations at the Horse Park. The museum aspect of the Hall of Fame will be housed in the park's new building that is home to the USHJA, and the plaques highlighting the careers of the men, women and horses who have been honored with induction into the Hall of Fame will be displayed in the park's new outdoor stadium.
"The Kentucky Horse Park is the center of equestrian sport in this country, attracting thousands of visitors each year," said George Morris, president of the Show Jumping Hall of Fame. "And with this year's Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games, that number will be significantly greater. We are looking forward to sharing this country's show jumping history with these many visitors and we thank the Kentucky Horse Park and the USHJA for giving us a new home in the horse capital of the world."

June 1 Deadline for Individuals to Submit Rule Change Proposals
June 1 is the deadline for individual United States Equestrian Federation members to submit rule change proposals to be considered for the upcoming year.
When considering a rule change submission, a well-researched and carefully prepared proposal will have a better chance of being approved by the USEF Board of Directors or Executive Committee and will have a more meaningful impact on the fairness of competition and on the welfare of the horse. This website includes helpful information including guidelines on how to prepare and submit rule changes. All proposed rule changes must be submitted on the official Proposed Rule Change form or can be obtained by contacting the USEF office.
If you need additional help submitting a rule change visit USEF.org. You can also visit USHJA.org for committee or staff contact information or you can visit the USHJA Rule Change Help Reference Page.
