About the Children’s and Adult Amateur Jumper Regional Championships

Over the years there have been on-going discussions among Adult Amateur and Children’s Jumper members hoping to one day have their own championship; in 2013 USHJA made that vision a reality. Members of the special task force included Eric Straus, Robert Ridland, Jeff Campf, Charlotte Skinner, Britt McCormick, David Wright and Sandra Ruiz. Once satisfied with a concept, the members submitted their report to the newly- formed Jumper Working Group, who in turn, refined, finalized and approved the program.

In an effort to provide greater participation, an introduction to the team experience, more competition and less cost to exhibitors there will be four regions, composed of the USHJA zones as follows:

North Region – Zones 1, 2 and 5
South Region – Zones 3 and 4
Central Region – Zones 6, 7 and 8
West Region – Zones 9, 10, 11 and 12
