Markel/USHJA Zone Jumper Team Championships

NEW for 2022
The 1.30/1.35m category has moved from the Zone Jumper Team Championships to the Platinum Jumper Championships.  This will allow Juniors, Amateurs, and Professionals to compete in these championships at both the 1.30/1.35m and the 1.40/1.45m categories.

The Markel/USHJA Zone Jumper Team Championships provide riders with a competitive team experience and an opportunity to earn Zone Horse of the Year points in the Children's and Adult Amateur Jumper (1.10/1.15m) and 1.20/1.25m Junior and Amateur. The Championships are held by zone and consist of both team and individual competition.  Zone 7 & 8 riders will choose a Championship that is contiguous to their home Zone.
Zone 7 (ZJTC 3/4 or 5/6) & Zone 8 (ZJTC 5/6 or 9/10).

For a chance to qualify, riders must complete an application and earn a minimum of 20 points in their respective section(s) at USEF-licensed competitions held with fence heights of that section during the qualifying period. View the calendar for detailed information on dates and deadlines for each set of Championships. Riders must also meet all other eligibility and qualification requirements as outlined in the Championship specifications.

Additionally, competitors in the Championships are considered USHJA Emerging Jumper Riders for the year(s) for which they participate. They have the opportunity to earn the title of USHJA Gold Star Emerging Jumper Rider and a coveted spot at a USHJA Gold Star Clinic. As part of the USHJA Emerging Jumper Rider Program, key sport leaders, including the US Equestrian Youth Chef d' Equipe DiAnn Langer, will be monitoring each set of Championships to assess talent among Championship competitors.
