Welcome to the United States Hunter Jumper Association! We welcome all equestrians and horse enthusiasts with any interest in the sport. Our memberships are designed to meet your needs and provide you with access to educational, competitive and awards hunter/jumper programs, as well as general sport information. When you join the USHJA, you join a community of equestrians with a passion for the hunter/jumper sport. Find the membership that’s right for you:
USHJA Active/Competing members competing in USEF-rated competitions must renew their US Equestrian membership separately though usef.org. Additionally, as of December 2021, horse registrations, transfers, leases and name changes will need to be completed through both USHJA and US Equestrian.
Please note: All members who are not Life or Active/Competing members are subject to USHJA Show Pass Fees if competing in USEF licensed competitions
USHJA Affiliate Association Memberships cost $100 and are valid through November 30 of the current competition year (December 1 to November 30). The following types of groups benefit from an Affiliated Association Membership:
USHJA Business Memberships cost $250 and are valid December 1 – November 30. These are for businesses that want to strengthen working relationships with each other and build long-term relationships with the USHJA and its members, while allowing business professionals to engage within the industry.
The USHJA Recognized Riding Academy Program acknowledges lesson programs, riding facilities, equestrian schools, and other types of educational equestrian programs that emphasize horsemanship and sportsmanship, promote safety, and offer introductory hunter/jumper lessons. These programs create a foundation for well-rounded equestrians who benefit the entire sport, and this recognition is designed to encourage the continued development and growth of these types of programs across the country.
For competition purposes, at least one owner of the Farm/Organization must have a valid Active/Competing membership. USHJA does not offer competing Farm/Organization memberships.
All horses competing in United States Equestrian Federation non-breed-restricted licensed competitions with hunter, hunter breeding, pony hunter breeding, jumper and hunter seat equitation classes must be properly identified and must obtain a registration number from USHJA.
