59th Annual Awards Banquet & Silent Auction, Saturday January 14th, 2012

award-cupJanuary 14, 2012: save the date!  Invitations will go out December 1st, 2011.

Each year, the Washington State Hunter Jumper Association holds its Annual Awards Banquet to celebrate the accomplishments of its member riders and horses. Awards in both the WSHJA State and National Points Programs are presented.

Winning can be attributed to many hours of hard work and training, early mornings in the saddle, and the untiring support of family, friends and trainers. And of course, none of it would be possible without the fabulous horses that we ride. The WSHJA Annual Awards Banquet is our way of bringing the membership together to celebrate the love of the sport and the love of the horse!

This year’s banquet is being held in the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue Washington.

As You Plan Your Last Shows Of The Season

by WSHJA Administrator September 14, 2011 in Announcements, Points, Shows

Everyone at WSHJA hopes you have enjoyed this show season--having had fun and success at all the shows you attended. Please keep in mind that qualifying for year-end awards requires you and each horse show in TWO USEF-rated Washington State shows. That’s two shows for you the rider to earn equitation points and two shows for each horse registered with WSHJA to earn hunter or jumper points. Any questions please direct to Karen Freywald at points@wshja.org.

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.

Please direct any questions regarding the Zone 9 Finals to Dianne Johnson dianjnsn@aol.com
