The South Texas Hunter/Jumper Association was begun in 2006 as an alternative approach to preparing for the higher level USEF shows. Divisions have been set up to replicate the format you would see at that caliber of a show, with emphasis on equitation, presentation, and professionalism. The purpose of STHJA is to offer exhibitors of all levels the opportunity to learn and show at quality horse shows. The organization is designed for both hunters and jumpers alike and offers equitation and medal classes for junior and adult amateur riders. STHJA uses the current USEF format and Language to provide exhibitors a solid educational tool whether they are preparing for upper level competition or wish to show at a quality local level.

The awards banquet has been set for Saturday, January 9, 2016 at 1:00 PM. It will be held at Cisco’s Restaurant in Tomball. All awards and ribbons will be given out then. The price per person will be $35.00. Each rider must inform their trainer whether or not they will attend by January 1, 2016. Riders will pay their trainers in advance. If you have no trainer you can simply mail a check to Bill Roberts and he will reserve your seat. Due to the size of the facility, we must limit the attendance to the first 100 people who reserve a seat. Thanks so much for attending the shows this year. Looking forward to next season. The 2016 calendar is posted on the website. Have a great Christmas and New Year.
We are definitely planning to do our show this weekend, December 5-6. The overall Champions and Reserve Champions will be announced at the show. We will be awarding all of the trophies and awards at the banquet which is scheduled for January or early February, 2016. We will let everyone know the exact date and time once it is finalized Sorry for the delay, but we have been exploring several options so it is a fun time for all.
Here are the dates for the upcoming 2016 show schedule.
A BIG Thank You to everyone who braved the weather and came to the rescheduled show on February 28-March 1. We had a great turnout and despite the drizzle and occasional rain a really good show. Our next show is in 2 weeks and we are featuring a 2′-6″ Hunter Derby for anyone wishing to move up and forward in showing. It is the week before Pin Oak. You can use it as a warm up. Ft. Bend Saddlery has a booth at our show if you need tack repair, blanket repair, or engraving. They are sponsoring several of our divisions this season. Also, there is apparently a glitch in our website so to clarify the schedule: We ONLY do Jumpers on Saturday at 10:00 in the sand arena and Sunday on the Grass Field Hunters go ONLY on Sunday at 8:00.
STHJA would like to welcome our incoming Advisory Board Members:
