Designed for athletes competing successfully in the 1.40/1.45m Jumpers, athlete/horse combinations qualify for the Markel/USHJA Platinum Jumper Championships by earning a minimum of $250 and completing an application at least 45 days before their zone’s Championships. The Championships are restricted to those athlete/horse combinations that have not competed in an Open High Performance Standard Grand Prix in the current competition year (JP122.4d).
Athlete/horse combinations earn a position on a team of four riders composed of professionals, juniors and amateurs. Qualifying periods vary by zone championship, beginning 30 days after the 2020 championship and ending 45 days prior to the 2021 championship, as noted below.

Applications do not indicate a commitment to attend but allow a rider's points to count toward qualifying.
