December Zone 10 Update
Happy holidays to all of our Zone 10 members! We hope everyone had a fantastic show season and enjoyed all of the wonderful year end awards and championships. Also, thank you to everyone who came out for the USHJA Annual Meeting – as usual, it was a productive meeting and we enjoyed seeing everyone and appreciate all of your feedback. We have just a short break and then we’ll be on to the 2019 show year! Be sure you are up to date on all the new and updated rules as well as exciting programs and championships for the upcoming show year. There are many opportunities for riders of all levels. We hope everyone has a safe, happy, and relaxing holiday with family and friends!

Know Before You Show!
The USHJA is helping members Know Before You Show with a simple guide of rule changes taking effect for the new competition year.

The 2019 competition year brings new requirements for competing members and horses with the implementation of the Safe Sport training requirement for all USEF members 18-years-old and older with a Competing Membership, and microchipping for all horses competing in USEF-licensed and/or USHJA sanctioned competitions with Hunter, Hunter Breeding, Jumper and Hunter/Jumping Seat Equitation classes not restricted by breed. 
Have you renewed your membership?
The 2019 competition year is underway, so don't forget to renew your USHJA, USEF and Affiliate Association memberships!

Beginning January 1, 2019, adults with USEF Competing Memberships must complete USEF's Safe Sport Training in order to be eligible to participate in USEF activities in the 2019 competition year.

Don't want to think about renewal every year? Take advantage of the auto-renew feature, so your membership automatically renews before expiring.
USHJA enhances Outreach Program for 2019
Exciting enhancements to the USHJA Outreach Program are beginning this competition year including free membership and the addition of equitation sections.

"We are excited to provide the hunter/jumper community with more competitive opportunities and a free membership level," said Mary Babick, president of the USHJA. "We hope these enhancements will make the USHJA Outreach Program more accessible while rewarding and recognizing great riding."

While anyone may compete in Outreach competitions, individuals who join USHJA as free Outreach Members will be eligible for recognition and awards. Competitors who are USHJA Outreach members can earn national recognition based on their Outreach competition points accrued throughout the competition year. Read more.
