The U.S. Hunter Jumper Association is pleased to announce the moving of the 2020 USHJA Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Nationals to a virtual format.
Originally set to be held at the George M. Humphrey Equestrian Center at Lake Erie College on November 6-8, the event has been adjusted to be held virtually due to the health and safety of USHJA members during the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2020 HQC Nationals will take place online between October 26 – November 7.
The inaugural Adult HQC Nationals, originally to be held at the Capital Challenge Horse Show on September 25-27 for adult amateur participants 21 years of age or older, is also moving online.
24 individuals will be invited to compete in this year’s virtual competition, which will be a multi-phase event that puts the top scoring participants, who advanced through HQC Levels One and Two, to the ultimate test.
This year's events will consist of a written exam and a final practicum that requires participants to demonstrate their mastery of practical horsemanship knowledge. A variety of prizes from USHJA's generous sponsors will be awarded to the top participants in each Nationals, including Boy-O-Boy Bridleworks, CWD and Parlanti.
USHJA will invite the top 24 qualified participants to the Horsemanship Quiz Challenge Nationals via email beginning in September. See the program specifications for detailed information on how finalists are selected.
