Qualified Lists available for AON/USHJA National Championships, late entries currently being accepted
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.
