2013 USHJA Children's & Adult Amateur Jumper West Regional Championships 

The final USHJA Children's and Adult Amateur Jumper Regional Championships took place  September 24-29, at the Sacramento International Welcome Week held at the Murieta Equestrian Center in Rancho Murieta, CA. As with the previous three Regional Championships, this event received high praise from the participants, who comprised the talented team and individual riders within Zones 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12.

 

The championship format and team concept was a new experience and the focal point for most of the competitors. 38 horses passed their fitness inspection on Wednesday and were more than ready to take on Thursday's technical course work from German designer Heiko Wahlers.

Lillie Keenan Achieves Gold in the Randolph College/USEF National Junior Jumper Individual Championship

Following four rounds of jumping in the $7,500 Randolph College/USEF National Junior Jumper Individual Championship at the 68th Annual Pennsylvania National Horse Show Lillie Keenan of New York, N.Y., again proved why she is considered one of the top up-and-coming talents in the sport of jumping. Riding her dual Gold medalist from the 2013 Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships presented by Gotham North, Londinium, the 16-year-old finished on a score of 9.5 faults to add Individual gold to the Team Silver won on Friday night with her Zone 2 teammates.

 

 

USHJA congratulates Lillie as well as all the competitors on an outstanding competition!

Zone 5 Defends Title at the 2013 Randolph College/USEF National Junior Jumper Championships

The team from Zone 5 hoped to defend their championship title from last year and they did just that Friday night in the 2013 Randolph College/USEF National Junior Jumper Championships. Not far behind, Zone 2 claimed the Silver medal and Zone 1 took the Bronze. Held during the 68th Annual Pennsylvania National Horse Show, the championships follow a modified Nations Cup format. Teams jumped the same course twice with one drop score permitted from each round. Alan Wade's course proved to be quite challenging, with the electric atmosphere also seeming to have an effect on the horses and riders.

Gold Medal - Zone 5 with Chef d'Equipe Alex Jayne
