USHJA Show Jumping Rider Ranking List

The USHJA Show Jumping Rider Ranking List provides the top Emerging Jumper Riders with recognition for their achievements in a National master ranking list, which also will be organized into three regions: East (Zones 1, 2, 3, and 4), Central (Zones 5, 6, 7, and 8), and West (Zones 9, 10, 11, and 12). USHJA will update the ranking list weekly and promote it. This list is separate from the Rolex/USEF Show Jumping Ranking List.

Riders earn points by earning money in specific grand prix or special classes at competitions that have applied to the USHJA to have their classes count toward the USHJA Rider Ranking List. Accepted classes are organized into two levels with one-half point per dollar earned in Level 1 classes and 1 point per dollar earned in Level 2 classes. Points may be earned in participating classes anywhere in the United States.
