Try USHJA Sponsor FITS' Pippa Knee Patch Thread Breech!
FITS’ brand new Pippa Knee Patch Tread Breech is the perfect combination of beauty and functionality- this is the breech you’ve been dreaming of.

Giving you a gorgeous silhouette in the saddle this knee patch breech features Euro-seat styling, a front zip closure, two slash pockets, and FITS’ printed technology silicone grip. Our patented seamless, gusseted crotch allows you to sit more deeply in the tack with added stretch and comfort.

USHJA has accepted more than 370 entries for the inaugural AON/USHJA National Championships at The Las Vegas National, CSI4*-W, which will take place November 13-18, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Championships offer Hunter, Jumper and Age Group Equitation divisions with $96,000 in prize money for the USEF/USHJA National Jumper Championships, and each Hunter section section offers $4,000 in prize money. The Championships also feature Affiliate Championships at fence heights of 2' and 2'6", which have received a wonderful response from Affiliate Organizations.

If you missed the entry deadline, we are now accepting late entries that meet the minimum qualifications for a section as space is available on a first-come, first-served basis after on-time entries. Entries close for the competition on October 15, and late entries for the AON/USHJA National Championships do not incur late fees.
