Designed for athletes competing successfully in the 1.40/1.45m Jumpers, athlete/horse combinations qualify for the Platinum Jumper Championships by earning a minimum of $250 and completing an application at least 45 days before their zone’s Platinum Jumper Championships. The Championships are restricted to those athlete/horse combinations that have not competed in a High Performance Standard Grand Prix or any class held at 1.60m in the current competition year.
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 the day after the 2018 championship and ending 45 days prior to the 2019 championship, as noted below.

Applications are $75 and do not indicate a commitment to attend but allow a rider's points to count toward qualifying.
