AON/USHJA National Championships

After a successful inaugural debut, the AON/USHJA National Championships are set to return in 2019 at The Las Vegas National, CSI4*-W, in Las Vegas, Nev., Nov. 12-17. 

The AON/USHJA National Championships will feature National Hunter Championships for Amateur Owner Hunters, Junior Hunters, Pony Hunters, Green Hunters, Adult Amateur Hunters and Children’s Hunters. They will also include the USEF/USHJA National Jumper Championships with eight sections of Jumper competition from 1.10m to 1.40m for Junior, Amateur and Open Jumper competitors. The Championships will feature the USHJA Affiliate Championships at fence heights of 2' and 2'6", and the Championships will offer the USHJA National Equitation Championships for riders 14 and under and those 15-17.

This year, the USHJA plans to add to the Championships a USHJA National Hunter Derby, a 3’3” USHJA Hunter Seat Medal class, as well as Performance Hunter 3’3” and 3’6” Championships, a Children’s Pony Hunter Championship, Adult Equitation 3’ Championship, 1.00m USEF/USHJA Low Children’s Jumper Championship, and 1.0m USEF/USHJA Low Adult Amateur Jumper Championship.

Members qualify largely based on Zone Horse of the Year points or Zone events. Points earned from competitions with a start date from Dec. 1, 2018, to Sept. 13, 2019, will count toward qualifying. Additionally, USHJA Affiliates are invited to send their best 2' and 2'6" horse-and-rider combinations to compete in the Affiliate Championships. Affiliates establish their own criteria for selecting Championship competitors, and all current USHJA Affiliates are invited to send members. Affiliate competitors do not have to be USHJA members.

USHJA encourages riders and trainers to save the date for these championships and start earning points toward qualifying. Entries will open later this year, and only those who enter are eligible to qualify. Once approved by US Equestrian, more information on qualifying, available sections and entries will be announced.

The Championships will take place during The Las Vegas National, CSI4*-W, which is held at the South Point Hotel, Casino, & Spa’s unique Arena & Equestrian Center. The Center offers an exceptional experience where riders and horses stay under one roof and exhibitors can also enjoy the spa, tables and slots, 64 bowling lanes, and nine dining establishments offered at the venue.
