CROSS-ENTRY PROHIBITED BETWEEN USEF RECOGNIZED AND OUTREACH CLASSES/DIVISIONS (effective retroactively to Dec 1, 2015):

  • Horse/Rider combinations MAY NOT CROSS-ENTER any hunter or jumper division or class at the same show where the division is offered in both the USEF Recognized and Outreach rings.  If a horse/rider combination cross-enters, the points from the Outreach classes will be voided.
  • Riders MAY NOT CROSS-ENTER any Equitation class or division at the same show where the division is offered in both the USEF Recognized and Outreach rings.  If a rider cross-enters, the points from the Outreach classes will be voided.

PLEASE NOTE:  These cross-entry restrictions are effective regardless of whether or not they are specified in the show's prize list.

    TRAINERS AND PARENTS, please note: 

    • Mini-Stirrup Equitation:  Any participant in Mini-Stirrup Equitation who reaches 400 points will receive an Achievement Award.  This is not a high-score division.  Restrictions:  once a rider canters at any USEF or NJHSA-recognized show, they are no longer eligible for Mini-Stirrup.
    • Short Stirrup and Beginner Rider Divisions:  Once a rider jumps 2' or higher at any USEF or NJHSA-recognized show, they are no longer eligible for Short Stirrup or Beginner RIder sections.  Trainers are urged to keep this in mind when considering moving a rider up.

    Volunteers Needed:  Are you outgoing? Do you like to meet new people? Then we need you! The NJHSA is looking for a highly motivated & energetic individual(s) to lead the Sponsor Committee. If interested, please contact Katie Benson at jackkate@aol.com.

    A reminder to riders in combined divisions: 

    Because the certain divisions are frequently combined, please be sure to check the other division standings for any points which may have been mis-classified.  This primarily affects Low Adult Hunters, Pre-Children’s Hunters, Pre-Children’s Equitation, and Children’s Hunters.  If you find points in the incorrect section, please notify the Points Secretary at points@njhsa.org.
