UNITED STATES HUNTER AND JUMPER ASSOCIATION FORMED TO REPRESENT HUNTER/JUMPER DISCIPLINE

November 17, 2003



NEW YORK, NY – A new equestrian association, the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA), has been formed in response to the overwhelming need to create a national affiliate representing the hunters and jumpers currently under the umbrella of the U.S. Equestrian Federation National Governing Board. The new association was created on November 3-4, 2003, when a group of nationally recognized owners, riders, trainers, judges and stewards met in Newark, New Jersey to formalize the development of an organization that would provide national representation for the hunter and jumper disciplines.

The mission of the USHJA is to unify and represent the interests of all levels of participants, promote and enhance the hunter/jumper disciplines and provide educational resources that will benefit both members and horses.

Although the USHJA is early in its development, a Board of Directors has been appointed with the intent to file an official request for affiliation with the U.S. Equestrian Federation.
