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.

A chilly “Hello” to everyone. Unfortunately, due to the projected rain, ice and really cold temperatures we have been forced to CANCEL the Year-End Finals show scheduled for this weekend-December 7-8, 2013. I waited until the last possible minute on the assumption that perhaps the weatherman may be wrong, but faced with precipitation and gusty North winds the decision was made for me. The upcoming holdays are also preventing us from rescheduling the show. I will take the updated points as of the previous show in November and base the Champion, Reserve Champion and all other placings on the accrued points at that show. If someone is within 3-10 points of a Championship, then in all likelihood I will award 2 Champions and/or Reserve Champions. It seems to be the only fair way of finishing the season. I want to personally thank everyone-riders, trainers, and parents-for having a very successful year and look forward to the 2014 show season. The schedule of shows is posted elsewhere on the website. Take care and have a VERY JOYOUS, HEALTHY, AND HAPPY HOLIDAY. See you next year. Kindest Regards, Bill Roberts
Just a reminder–our Year-End Finals Show will be held on December 7-8 at Lane’s End. You must ride in the final show to place in the year end awards. However, the show is not restricted to riders seeking final placements. Once again, Dumas’ Tacos will be catering the meal on Sunday, December 8. The meal is open to all competitors, trainers, and family members. Thanks for a great show year, and see you all on December 7-8. The 2014 show calendar is posted on the website.
The tentative 2014 schedule is now available. The dates follow:
January 25-26 Winter I

Due to inclement weather, we are rescheduling the show for next Sunday (November 3rd) only.
