USHJA Announces Changes to Organization’s Presidency Position

Lexington, Ky.—April 16, 2024—The U.S. Hunter Jumper Association announces it has welcomed Britt McCormick to the role of USHJA President after receiving the recent resignation of longtime President, Mary Knowlton. McCormick was set to begin his first term later this year and will now step into the presidency role with immediate effect. 

“My journey to USHJA presidency began many years ago and since my election in September, I have been working to prepare myself fully to support the needs of the USHJA, our members, our show managers, and our dedicated staff, along with all our many stakeholders across the country. I’m not only eager but ready to begin serving our membership as President,” said McCormick. “The upcoming Mid-Year Board Meeting, a few short weeks away in May, is the right time to begin planning for a strong future for the USHJA. I would like to thank Mary for her unwavering dedication throughout the years, as she has been invaluable to the organization. We thank her for her committed service to our sport and wish her the best of luck in her future endeavors.” 

“We are excited to welcome Britt McCormick into the USHJA presidency, a role he’s been diligently preparing for many years. Britt brings a wealth of knowledge to the position and understands the unique and multifaceted needs of USHJA and our members, while bringing a fresh, yet experienced perspective to our governance processes,” said Kevin Price, USHJA Executive Director. “I want to thank Mary Knowlton for her dedication to the success and growth of USHJA over the past eight years as President, and many prior years as an Officer and Committee member. This transition marks the start of a new chapter for our organization. Our staff is ready to support Britt immediately and continue driving programs and resources benefitting our membership base.” 

Knowlton’s lasting impact on USHJA is without question. Her presidency began in 2016 and provided stable leadership for members and stakeholders over the years, with a focus on member feedback and participation in the decision-making process, as well as the expansion and access of competitive and educational programs available for members around the country.
