The USHJA Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Nationals is a multi-phase event that puts the top scoring participants, who advanced through HQC Levels One and Two, to the ultimate test. HQC Nationals, formerly known as the HQC Finals, consists of a written exam, a horsemastership/identification exam, and a final practicum that requires participants to demonstrate their mastery of practical horsemanship knowledge.
In 2019, the 24 individuals who score the highest on the Level Two Quiz will be invited to compete in the HQC Nationals where they can win a variety of prizes. The overall champion will receive a $2,000 grant for training and education, provided by the USHJA Foundation and a Charles Owen helmet. Reserve champion will receive a $1,500 grant for training and a Charles Owen helmet. Third overall will receive a $500 grant and Charles Owen helmet.
USHJA will invite the top 24 qualified participants to the Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Nationals via email beginning in September. (If a top-24 individual zone finisher cannot attend, or a zone does not have a top finisher from the Level Two Quiz, that spot will be open to the next nationally ranked finisher.)
