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.

Some candid shots from the Year End Show in December.
Congratulations once again to all of our Champions, Reserve Champions and exhibitors for making 2014 a very successful year. Looking forward to seeing you next season. The 2015 show season begins January 17-18.
The tentative 2015 Show Schedule is now posted on the website. Our Year End Final Show for 2014 is December 6-7. As always, Jumpers will go Saturday, December 6 starting at 10:00 AM and the Hunters go Sunday, December 7 starting at 8:00 AM.
Remember, there will be lunch catered by Dumas’ Tacos for trainers, parents, and exhibitors on Sunday, December 7, courtesy of Bill Roberts and STHJA. Come and enjoy.
Please note that we will be starting the June 8, 2014 show a little earlier to avoid the heat. The outdoor Hunter Ring will begin at 7:30 AM, the Indoor Arena at 8:00 AM, and the Jumpers at 9:00 AM. These same times will apply to the July 13, 2014 show. Thanks.
We have a schedule change. The July show that was originally scheduled for July 5-6 is now being presented on Sunday, July 13th only. Summer temps and show conflicts have convinced us to change the date. Hope to see everyone there.
THE MAY 18TH SUNDAY SHOW IS DEFINITELY ON!! THERE IS SOME CONFUSION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT WE ARE DOING THE SHOW SINCE THE EDGEBROOK SHOW IS NEXT SUNDAY. WE ARE DOING THE LANE’S END SHOW AS SCHEDULED BEGINNING AT 8:00 AM.
Hello and Happy Springtime!
Just a reminder–some of you did not get the Lane’s End May 17-18 prize list. We are in fact doing that show. The footing is excellent after the recent rains. Also, the Edgebrook show is Sunday, May 25 only. See you at both.
A reminder that we will be adding another show to our schedule. The Edgebrook Equestrian Center one-day show will be held on Sunday, May 25 beginning at 8:00 AM. Directions and a map will follow soon. The points accrued will count towards the Year-End awards. See you then.
