The 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), 1.20/1.25m Junior and Amateur, and 1.30/1.35m Junior and Amateur sections. The Championships are held by zone and consist of both team and individual competition.
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.
*The USHJA regrets to announce that the 2020 USHJA Zone Jumper Team Championships have been cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Championships are set to return in 2021.*
