Strengthening Our Hunter/Jumper Community

The USHJA Foundation provides financial support for an important set of educational, humanitarian, and competitive programs designed to strengthen our hunter/jumper community. Valuing education as a priority, we offer grants, scholarships, and funding for programs that empower talented hunter/jumper equestrians to pursue their personal and professional goals. 


The support we receive from our donors generates a pathway of opportunity for deserving USHJA members by providing access to riding clinics, horsemanship education, competition experience, and education outside the arena. At the same time, we believe that protecting the welfare of our community is essential and respond with relief for USHJA members in times of crisis.


The United States Hunter Jumper Association Foundation is a non-profit 501(C) 3 organization. To make your tax deductible donation or for questions please contact Kate Cattani at (732) 979-7262.
