Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund/USHJA Emerging Athletes Program Regional Training Sessions

Regional Training Sessions: 3’ Sections  

The Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund/USHJA Emerging Athletes Program provides opportunities for riders to advance their education as they strive to become knowledgeable horsemen and women within the hunter/jumper community. In 2019, seven of the 10 EAP Regional Training Sessions will offer a special 3' section, giving riders of all ages an introduction to the benefits of the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program at a 3' fence height. Riders participating in a 3' section will have full access to all aspects of the Regional Training Session but are not eligible to qualify for the National Training Session.


Riders interested in participating in the EAP 3’ Sections must:

  • Be a current member of the USHJA above the Outreach level and in good standing 
  • Riders must be proficient at completing courses set at 3' feet or higher
  • May be any age to participate

How It Works

Space for the available 3' sections is limited to eight riders. Riders who submit the 3' application and pay the $50 application fee to USHJA will be accepted to the 3' section on a first come, first served basis until all spots are filled. If there are more than eight applications submitted for a particular session the day applications open, there will be a random draw to determine participants.

How to Apply

Log into your USHJA online account and click on the “EAP Application” link. Check the box of the EAP 3' Regional Training Session to which you are applying. Complete the application in its entirety and submit payment by the listed deadline. Riders will be accepted on a first come, first served basis and will be notified by email.


The following EAP Regional Training Sessions will offer a 3' section. Applications will open February 4, and must be received by the listed deadlines. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
