USHJA Hunter Sections

The USHJA Hunter sections are designed to provide competitors with an opportunity to earn Zone Horse of the Year points in open sections with fence heights of 2'0", 2'3", 2'6", 2'9" or 3'0".

Zone HOTY points are awarded at USEF Premier (AA), National (A), and Regional (B) shows. 

Competitions may overlay the USHJA Hunter section with another section, however the USEF license must have USHJA Hunter 2'3, etc. on it, and it must be clearly stated in the prize list as a USHJA Hunter section. USHJA Hunter sections will count toward the required number of rated sections necessary for the licensed rating. The section must be listed on the competition's USEF License and in the prize list as a USHJA Hunter section for Zone HOTY points to be awarded.

Any USHJA sections may be offered as junior/amateur only sections only at competitions restricted to juniors and amateurs. Competitors will still earn points for Zone HOTY.

Competitions may offer any number of these sections. Each section must offer between three and five classes with one of those classes designated as an under saddle. The sections are open to all competitors riding horses or ponies. Participation in these sections may affect green status for ponies.
