ATTENTION CHILDREN'S HUNTER-HORSE EXHIBITORS:  Based on participation in this division, the NJHSA Board has decided to split the division into two sections for High Score Awards. Separate awards will be given for Younger (age 14 and under) and Older (age 15-17) sections. 
ATTENTION SCHOOLING HUNTER AND SUITABLE HUNTER EXHIBITORS:  Due to lack of participation, the Schoolings and Suitables will be combined into a single High Score section for the 2014 show year. 
ATTENTION PRE-CHILDREN'S EQUITATION EXHIBITORS:  Due to lack of participation, only one combined High Score section will be offered for Pre-Children's Equitation for the 2014 show year. The NJHSA Board of Directors will re-evaluate the situation at our September meeting.
MID-YEAR POINTS CUT-OFF:  All shows for the first half of the year (Dec. 1, 2013 - May 31, 2014) have been reported and reconciled.  Points for the first half are now FINAL and may not be contested.  Only inquiries for the second half of the year will be accepted.
Stirrup Cup Specs - NJHSA and USHJA Zone 2 specs for Pre-Children's Hunter and Low Adult Hunter differ slightly.  For the 2014 season, NJHSA will recognize divisions run under Stirrup Cup specs.  For 2015, NJHSA will adopt the Stirrup Cup specs for these divisions.
Get ready for 2014!  Our specs for 2014 are now available for download here.  Please note that we have added Beginner Rider, Beginner Hunter, and Itty-Bitty Jumper as High Score Divisions for next year.  Also, renew your membership early so you don't miss a single point.  Download a Membership Form here.  The 2014 show year starts December 1, 2013.
The membership roster now inlcudes Trainer information.  Please check your trainer information, and if it needs to be corrected or changed, please let the Point Secretary know.  We use this information to calculate Trainer of the Year at the end of the season.

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

Rule Changes for 2014 Show Season:  The NJHSA Board has approved the following changes, effective December 1, 2013:

  • Children's Hunter Ponies will be offered as a single High Score section.  Rationale: insufficient participation to warrant two separate award sections.  The NJHSA reserves the right to split the section according to size (Small/Medium and Large) if participation warrants.
  • Children's Hunter Horses will be offered as a single High Score section.  Rationale: insufficient participation to warrant two separate award sections. The NJHSA reserves the right to split the section by age (Under 15 and 15-17) if participation warrants.
  • The following new High Score Award sections will be added: Beginner Rider, Beginner Hunter, and Itty-Bitty Jumper.  Final specifications for these new sections will be published in October.

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
