        USHJA Foundation to Offer More Scholarships and Grants in 2013

        Since 2011 the USHJA Foundation has partnered with several USHJA Zones to offer the Scholarship & Grants Partner Program, as a means for zones to give back to their members in the form of financial assistance towards educational needs.

        The USHJA Foundation continues to honor its pledge of contributing additional funds to help grow the cash value of each scholarship or grant that a zone bestows. During 2013, the Foundation welcomed an increased number of zone partners and increased zone donations, which in turn provides for more recipients and larger awards.

        An Investment in Our Future: Each scholarship and grant awarded by USHJA Zones is one step closer to ensuring the future of the American Hunter Jumper sport. The Foundation believes these funds:

        • Help students who choose to rise to the challenge of obtaining a college degree.
        • Move future farriers and veterinary technicians a step closer to realizing their career dreams.
        • Aid professionals in becoming certified trainers.
        • Encourage young equestrians to reach higher levels of riding accomplishments via sources such as the Emerging Athletes Program’s curriculum with elite clinicians.

        This year Zone 9 Hunter and Jumper committees joined forces with the USHJA Foundation to award $3,000 to two deserving Zone 9 members. To learn more about the Zone 9 educational offerings please contact Chris Murphy at (859) 225-6714.

      • USHJA Annual Meeting

        The new Zone 9 Jumper Committee met regarding the upcoming rule changes and suggestions for the USHJA Annual Meeting, December 3 through 6 in Miami, FL. Committee members took the time to cover all issues relevant to Zone 9, going through the 117 page document from the USHJA and weighing in on what they thought would be beneficial for the Zone. Rule change ideas ranged from black stirrup irons in the Equitation ring, to what to do if a horse falls at a show, to when it was (and wasn’t) appropriate to use draw reins. Committee Chair, Jeff Campf, will be attending the meeting on December 2 and 3 to carry forward the ideas and suggestions made by the committee.

        Members who wish to provide feedback on the upcoming rule changes should contact their representatives. All members can be contacted through the Zone 9 Facebook page.

      • Young Riders for 2013

        Committee members discussed the necessity of having one person as the "Chef de Equip" for future Young Riders Teams as well as a Coordinator. It was felt that our Zone needed to have a Coach to help represent the riders at meetings, handle the paperwork and take care of other various issues that often occur. Cara Anthony has shouldered the responsibilities of being a Coordinator in the past and volunteered to continue to do so. A Chef will be decided upon once the new team has been formed for 2013.

      • Treasurer

        Max Von Zimmerman had graciously acted as the Zone 9 Jumper Treasurer, however, after filling the position successfully for some time now, had requested that someone else be considered for the task. Megan Jordan has graciously accepted the position and will take over the responsibilities going forward in 2013.

      • Grass-roots Organization

        Because the USHJA is able to offer support to smaller, local show organization, it was requested that a list be complied and sent in so that these organizations can be contacted by the USHJA. A notice was put on Facebook and a "starter" list was sent into the USHJA. Any members who know of a local hunter jumper organization that would be interested in USHJA support, please let Katherine Wade-Easley know.

      • Scholarships

        Responses were still down in regard to scholarships in 2012. Committee members were concerned that because it was "need based", that not as many people were taking advantage of them. The Committee stressed the importance of continuing to communicate with members about scholarship application due dates and additional requirements. Scholarships will continue to be advertised in email reminders, as well as Facebook.

      • Zone 9 Communications

        In an effort to progress communications with members, both Zone 9 Hunter and Jumper committees will continue to send out email updates to members. The Zone 9 Facebook page is showing growth with 152 "Likes". Posts are seen by an average of 60 people and are updated regularly. Members are encouraged to "Like" the page and check in for regular updates. If there are any issues you would like to see discussed or any questions you may have, please contact Katherine Wade-Easley.

        The 2012 Zone Elections have closed and the individuals listed below have been elected by the eligible voting members to represent your zone.

        Next steps: The three largest Affiliate Organizations, within the zone and registered with the USHJA, have the opportunity to recommend one appointee who has designated hunter to the Hunter Committee and one appointee who has designated jumper to the Jumper Committee. At a later date additional appointments will be made to ensure a balanced committee on the basis of geography and constituency representation.

      • 2012 Elections
        • Thanks to a wonderful response from Zone 9 members, our Nominating Committee has several names to consider for the upcoming election. We appreciate everyone who volunteered to be on the Jumper Committee. Our Nominating Committee is hard at work creating a ballot. We are only allowed, per USHJA Bylaws, to have eight names on the ballot. The committee will narrow the list by geographic balance, technical and governance expertise, and constituency representation. The Zone 9 Jumper Nominating Committee wants everyone to know that they sincerely appreciate all the volunteers who responded. People whose names that do not appear on the final list should not be dissuaded from volunteering in the future. There will always be opportunities for volunteers!

      • April 30 Deadline for Funding for NAJYRC, Prix des States and US Pony Jumper Championships
        • April 30 is the deadline for riders wanting to receive funding from the Zone 9 Jumper Committee for participation in the Prix des States, North American Junior Young Rider Championships and the US Pony Jumper Championships. Anyone interested in being selected and receiving funding MUST have his/her paperwork submitted by April 30, 2012: Application. All applicable riders need to make sure they apply as soon as possible.

      • 2012 NAJYRC Certificate of Capability
        • Young Riders interested in participating in the NAJRYC need visit the USEF's NAJYRC page for complete details regarding the Certificate of Capability. It is necessary for all riders to obtain the certificate in order to qualify. Zone 9 will be offering classes to interested riders that meet the specifications necessary to complete the certificate. In order for competition staff to be able to ensure courses are set appropriately, riders looking to earn certificates they should notify Cara Anthony before participating in the upcoming competitions.

          The qualifying classes in our area are (must be set at 1.40m):

          • Evergreen Classic (grand prix)
          • County Classic (grand prix)
          • Spring National Jumper Show (grand prix)
          • Early Summer Classic (grand prix)
      • Pony Jumper Qualifications
        • As with the NAJYRC and Pony Jumper divisions, division in the Pacific Northwest may not always be set at the level that they would be for Pony Finals. The Jumper Committee has put forth for 2013 that each pony/rider combination must obtain a Certificate of Capability for a course set at 1.10, or higher, with a maximum of 4 jumping faults. Committee members are in discussions with Competition Management to set the Pony Jumper classes higher for riders looking to obtain his/her certification.

      • New Helmet Rule in effect, April 1, 2012
        • As of April 1, all riders, at all times, will be required to wear a helmet while mounted. There are no exceptions to this rule. Trainers, please make sure to inform your clients as these rules will be enforced at all USEF competitions.

      • Pre-Green Specifications for 2013
        • Committee members voted to reinstate the 2011 Zone 9 specification for Pre-Green horses.

          A Pre-Green hunter is a horse in its first two consecutive years of showing at 3' or 3'3", regardless of age, that has never shown at 3'6". Pre-Green horses may not be reinstated. Fences: 3' - 3'3". Horses may not cross-enter into 3'6" divisions. Horses not to jog. To be judged on performance. There will be two annual awards for the Pre-Green sections: 3' and 3'3".

          In addition to the 2011 specifications the committees have added the USEF language:

          A horse's pre-green status may be reinstated per HU106.3 (f through l) for a future competition year if it was not shown at the 3'height or 3'3" height at more than four (4) competitions prior to September 1 and if it was not shown at that height after September 1 in the same year.
      • Grant and Scholarship Funding Chair Nominated
        • Kim Guard graciously stepped forward to take the reins on the Grant and Scholarship Sub-Committee for Zone 9. This committee will be responsible for determining how many and what type, of grants and scholarships to offer. Ideas ranged from funding for EAP and TCP clinics, as well, as college programs. If you would like serve on this committee, or have any thoughts on what the grant and scholarship money should be used for, please contact Kim Guard.

    • March Zone News
      • Zone 9 Forums
      • Zone 9 Nominates PR Representative for Communications
        • The USHJA is currently encouraging all of the zones to have a PR representative. With this year being an election year, the Zone 9 Jumper Committee agreed that the need for communicating with members was imperative. Committee members felt that it was extremely important to find a way to have one person the membership can communicate and go to with questions and ideas about what is "really" going on within his/her zone. The hope is to be able to inform the general membership about what his/her individual committee is doing. By having a point person as a representative, it gives someone to whom both committee members and the general membership can go to with ideas about what they want to have "talked about" on the Zone 9 page, as well as, bullet points in the email updates sent out to membership. The idea is in the beginning stages, but as it matures it is hoped that it will help the general membership and provide a way to inform them about the choices the committee is making. If you have ideas about what you would like to see more information on or questions pertaining to what is happening in your local zone, please feel free to contact your new PR representative: Katherine Wade-Easley.

      • Elections
        • 2012 is an election year and that means if anyone is interested in running for a position, the time is NOW. Although, most of us in the general membership are not actively aware of everything the committee does, they are responsible for quite a few of the decisions that impact our sport on a daily basis. Committee members are required to discuss proposed rule changes – making appropriate suggestions to the governing body of the USHJA, as well as rule changes/updates within the zone itself. Committee members have a direct impact on year-end awards, scholarships, grants and sending feedback to the USHJA in regard to Zone 9. Each member should be an active participant in this process – whether it is in the Nominating Committee, running for a position or just making sure they vote; the election process is an important one and needs to be a top priority for all members. 2012 Zone Election Timeline

          Zone 9 Jumper Nominating Committee

          A top priority for the committee members is the Nominating Committee. The current committee consists of six members: Cara Anthony, Max Von Zimmerman and Gayl Russell as elected by the Zone 9 Jumper Committee and three additional members appointed by Bill Moroney, USHJA President. After nominations close, on April 1, 2012, the Nominating Committee will be charged with making sure that the ballot has met the minimum number of nominees and has not exceeded the maximum number. Zone 9 elections are an opportunity for members to choose his/her representatives and being a committee member is a great way for members to start his/her involvement in the decision making process. If a member is interested in participating in this process, they can contact Chris Murphy or complete the nomination form and express his/her interest in getting involved. Nominations for the committee will be closed as of April 1: Members need to be in good standing – as a senior active or associate member of the USHJA – by March 1, 2012.

      • April 30 Deadline for Funding for NAJYRC, Prix des States and US Pony Jumper Championships
        • April 30 is the deadline for riders wanting to receive funding from the Zone 9 Jumper Committee for participating in the Prix des States, North American Junior and Young Rider Championships and the US Pony Jumper Championships. Anyone who is interested in being selected and receiving funding MUST have his/her paperwork submitted by April 30, 2012. The form is online.

          All applicable riders need to make sure they follow up with this as soon as possible.

      • 2012 NAJYRC Certificate of Capability
        • There has been some concern that it is difficult for riders to find appropriate classes in which to obtain a certificate of capability in the Northwest. Young Riders interested in participating in NAJYRC need to be sure to check the USEF's NAJYRC page for complete details regarding the certificate of capability.

          The qualifying competitions in our area are:

          1. Evergreen Classic (the grand prix – must be at 1.40M)
          2. County Classic (the grand prix – must be at 1.40M)
          3. Spring National Jumper Show (the grand prix – must be at 1.40M)
          4. Early Summer Classic (the grand prix – must be at 1.40M)

      • New in 2012: Jumper Championship Team Application
        • In 2012, the Zone 9 Jumper Committee is asking that all members interested in participating on one of the four championship teams complete the team application. By completing the application a rider becomes eligible to receive funds from the zones if the rider is chosen to be a part of a championship team. Please note that a rider may still become a team member if they have not completed the application, however, they will not receive funds from the zone.

    • USHJA Foundation to Offer More Scholarships and Grants in 2012
      • In 2011, the USHJA Foundation partnered with several USHJA Zones to develop the Scholarship & Grants Partner Program. Designed to benefit the USHJA members with a cohesive and easy to use system, the program became an instant success and provided zones the opportunity to give back to his/her members in the form of financial assistance towards educational needs.

        The USHJA Foundation continues to honor its pledge of contributing additional funds to supplement the various educational awards, which helps to grow the cash value of each scholarship or grant that a zone bestows. 2012 has welcomed an increased number of zones now partnering with the Foundation and an increase in the zone donations. This growth is a win-win to everyone. Zones are able to provide for more recipients and the awards can be more sizable.

        An Investment in Our Future

        Each scholarship and grant awarded by USHJA Zones is one step closer to ensuring the future of the American Hunter Jumper sport. These funds can:

        • Help students who choose to rise to the challenge of obtaining a college degree- perhaps becoming the first in his/her family to attend college.
        • Move future farriers and veterinary technicians a step closer to realizing his/her career dreams.
        • Aid professionals in becoming certified trainers who might not otherwise be able to afford the expense of educational programs.
        • Encourage young equestrians to reach higher levels of riding accomplishments via sources such as the Emerging Athletes Program's curriculum with elite clinicians.

    • October IHSA News
      • Affiliate News: IHSA (Intercollegiate Horse Show Association)

        Since 2008, the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association has contributed a portion of every regular-season entry fee from the Hunter Seat Novice Flat and Novice Western classes to Ride For The Ribbon, to support breast cancer awareness. According to IHSA Board of Directors member Naomi Blumenthal, for the 2010-11 season the IHSA raised $3,500.

        Ride For The Ribbon, the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research, was launched in 1998 in memory of Spielman, who survived two bouts with breast cancer before losing her battle in November 2009.

        Sharon van der Walde, with Ride For The Ribbon, said the original goal of $1 million has been amply surpassed: Support for the cause has raised $6 million.

        "Ride For The Ribbon came about because of the friendship Stefanie and I shared, and the fact that our daughters rode," said van der Walde. "When Naomi contacted me about wanting to help, I had no idea the impact she—and IHSA—would have! I'm overwhelmed that IHSA riders care enough to participate in Ride For The Ribbon classes."

        This season, every IHSA Novice class during the school year will again contribute toward the fund. For more information on Ride For The Ribbon, visit www.ridefortheribbon.net or call (614) 563-6301.

      • IHSA Zone 8 - AZ, BC, CA, CO, ID, KS, MT, NE, NV, NM, OK, OR, UT, WA & WY

        October is a big month for the colleges in Zone 8 as his/her show seasons begin from Arizona to British Columbia.

        In Region 5, the Zone's newest addition, the first show of the season was the October 8-9 competition hosted by the University of Colorado, Boulder. Head Coach Jill Pelzel, of Fall River Farm in Lupton, Colorado, is looking for her team to repeat the Buffalo's first trip to the IHSA National Finals in 2011.

        Down in Region 1, the hunt seat season begins with the November 5-6 show co-hosted by Stanford University and the University of Santa Clara in California.

        With a sixth-placed finish at the 2011 IHSA Nationals, Stanford began the year with their annual Red Barn Festival fundraiser on October 9, with all proceeds going to Stanford team.

        In a multi-phase jumper competition, juniors, amateurs and professionals, including many collegiate riders from the Region 1 colleges, compete on his/her own horses in events including the 5-Bar and a Jumper Relay. Last year's winner, Stanford junior Nicoletta Heidegger, cleared 5'6" in the 5-Bar.

    • NAJYRC
    • August Zone Forum: Summary, Committee Update and Upcoming Events
      • Max's Summary Notes

        Max von Zimmermann's summary notes from the August 10 informal zone forum during the Evergreen Classic.

        We sent around a sign in sheet and there were 17-20 people in attendance. Introductions of Zone Committee members, including those in attendance, Jeff Campf, Cara Anthony, Corene Smith, Megan Jordan, and myself.

        We went over the topics discussed at the last forum including the Zone Budget and the importance of getting the members to declare their discipline, whether it be hunter or jumper.

        On the table for discussion for this forum was the use of zone funds for sponsored clinics in the area, either as a complementary tool or a fundraiser for the committee.

        Also discussed were the newly established applications for sponsorship of zone teams; Prix des States: Junior Jumpers (Harrisburg), NAJYRC, Pony Finals, etc. In order to receive zone funding for these competitions the riders will need to apply with the Zone before April 30. (More information on this program will be released at the beginning of 2012)

        Again for the second forum in a row, the Junior Jumper specifications were a hot topic for discussion. An idea to create qualifiers at designated shows throughout the year would help grow the division, as well as, the creation of Junior Jumper specific classes in the area as well.

        Discussion of Bylaw 440, regarding the presidential appointment of Zone Chairs and Vice Chairs was met with the vast majority of the group with two opinions: either repeal entirely or develop a specific job description for zone chairs and vice chairs.

        In closing we talked about the creation of a media position for our zone to better utilize the media outlets that are available to us as a committee.

        Zone 9 Committee

        The following topics were discussed and will be further considered by the Zone 9 Committee

        Specifications: Change the current Zone 9 specifications for children's hunter pony to allow a pony in a rated division to cross enter with restrictions into one children's pony class at the same competition December 1 through November 30 zone year.

        Regional Finals: Larry Langer will continue to hold a Zone 8, 9 and 10 regional finals at his California competition.

        Of Zone 8's five riders who competed in the Cacchione Cup, it was Region 2's Camille Pease from the University of California Los Angeles who earned a spot in the top 10, finishing eighth. In addition, Pease took home another eighth in individual open fences.

        Upcoming Events

        Starting in 2011, zone's receive funding from the $2 per horse zone support fee paid at rated USEF competitions. Funds are allocated based on a members declared discipline. Zones do not receive funding for members who are undeclared or have declared both hunter and jumper.
