Zones 1 & 2 Championships To Be Held in New York

SAUGERTIES, N.Y. — After two successful years of offering team championships for Children's and Adult Amateur Hunter riders, the USHJA Children's and Adult Amateur Hunter Championships, presented by SmartPak, are moving to a zone-based geography in 2018.

USHJA is now accepting applications for this year's Championships at www.ushja.org/ChAAHunter.

The Championships will be organized by zone providing both team and individual competition, and in 2018, five championships will be offered as follows: 

The championship for Zones 1 & 2 will be held Aug. 29 to Sept. 2 at HITS on the Hudson, in Saugerties, N.Y.

The qualifying period: began Aug. 14, 2017 and run through June 30, 2018.

Applications will close:on June 30.

"We believe that changing these championships to a zone-based geography will make them more accessible and enable more members to experience exciting team and individual Hunter competition," Tobey McWilliams, chair of the USHJA Hunter Working Group Children's Adult Task Force, said. "We look forward to continuing to grow this program and want to thank our 2018 championships hosts."

The new structure of the Children's and Adult Amateur Hunter Championships aligns with that of the popular USHJA Zone Jumper Team Championships, which made the move to this zone-based geography in 2016.

USHJA has adjusted the specifications for the Championships to provide more time for members to apply and qualify. In 2018, riders will have to apply for their points to count toward qualifying 60 days prior to their championships start date, which is also the deadline for accumulating points.

The USHJA Children's and Adult Amateur Hunter Championships provide riders with a competitive team experience and the opportunity to earn Zone Horse of the Year championship points in their respective Children's or Adult Amateur Hunter section. 

Riders compete over two days of team and individual competition. Team competition takes place on day one of the Championships and includes an under saddle and two classic hunter over fences classes. Individual champions are crowned on day two after completing an under saddle, a classic hunter derby-style course and a handy hunter course.

Visit www.ushja.org/chaahunter for more information and to apply.
