For more than 30 years, WSHJA has been presenting some of the finest Hunter and Jumper shows in the Pacific Northwest. Our premier USEF-rated horse shows offer fun and thrilling competition for beginners and Grand Prix riders alike, and often provide unique skill-building opportunities through clinics and special events. Our distinctive shows feature beautifully designed courses, wonderful prizes and amenities, and an increasing emphasis on exhibitor and spectator-friendliness.

WSHJA is a non-profit member-run association, reliant on the generosity of its sponsors, the charitable contributions of its volunteers and the participation of the hunter jumper community at large to make the show go on! WSHJA is one of the very few USHJA Affiliate Associations in the country to hold its own competitions. All “profits” earned from the shows WSHJA presents are reinvested back into the organization, except when the show is a benefit show, to enhance its offerings to the WSHJA membership and the hunter jumper community as a whole.

Northwest Autumn Classic Honored To Host Zone IX Finals!

The USHJA Zone 9 Finals will return to WSHJA’s Northwest Autumn Classic, September 14th-18th at the Evergreen Equestrian Park in Monroe, WA. USHJA Zone 9 will be awarding great awards to the top six places for all Rated Hunter Sections, Children's, Adult Amateur, Pony and Amateur Owner/Junior Jumpers.

The USHJA has introduced a new point system for the Zone Finals—essentially that instead of one class counting bonus points for the year end awards, the whole divisions will count for bonus points as follows: 1st – 50, 2nd – 40, 3rd – 30, 4th – 20, 5th – 10, 6th – 5, 7th- 4, 8th- 2 and Champion – 100, Reserve Champion - 75

Zone Finals competition will include 2 O/F and 1 U/S class for each section and zone bonus points will be awarded based on the newly revised criteria. This applies to all Rated Hunter Sections and Children's(1.10m), Adult Amateur(1.10m), and Pony Jumpers.

Children’s Jumper, Adult Jumper, Pony Jumper, 5-Year Old, 6-Year Old and 7/8 Year Old Jumper will receive points from the Zone Finals Bonus Point Chart excluding Champion and Reserve Points.

Junior Jumper and Amateur Owner Jumper points will be based on one point for every dollar won unless no money is awarded and then these classes will receive points from the Zone Finals Bonus Point Chart excluding Champion and Reserve points.

The clinic was held in conjunction with the draw for the order of go for Saturday night's ASPCA Maclay Regional Final.
