After many years of exciting classes designed to slow down and rate jumpers, I have decide to eliminate the Optimum Time classes and replace them with Timed First Round Classes, based on the speed of the individual horse and rider. We will be implementing these changes in our September 16 show at Haras dos Cavaliieros, as well as factoring into the scoring for the Hunter Derby on Sunday, September 17. Here’s to speed and handiness! Remember we begin at 4:00 (16:00) sharp. The Classic will begin soon thereafter after a course change and adequate schooling time. There will be an order of go established which WE MUST adhere to as per USEF guidelines. See you soon. Bill
Hello to everyone from Prague. I’ll soon be in Magnolia preparing for our inaugural show at Has Dos Cavallieros on September 16-17. I was privileged to be able to attend the Czech National Championships held in Pribram at the largest Equestrian Center in Central Europe. While there, I secured several additional sponsorships for the upcoming season; Including Mr. Robert Kennedy, Brookside Pine Farm and Mr. Berry Porter, The Czech Equestrian Team, Komercni Banka, Prague Shakespeare Company s.r.o., CEO Guy Roberts and Jessica Roberts, Dance and Jump Tack Store, Terpis Dance Company, LLC., CEO Chloe Roberts, and Dobraslav Kubista Sporthorses, I’m also pleased to announce that the winners of the upcoming $1000 Jumper Classic at Haras Dos Cavallieros on Saturday, September 16 and the $1000 Hunter Derby on Sunday, September 17, will each win a custom made saddle from an exclusive saddlery in Argentina who custom makes all of the saddles that Tony Font rides to victory in. Sign up for either the Classic or the Derby before the fields get too big for additional entries. Here’s to a great show!! See you all soon. Bill Roberts
SouthTexas Hunter Jumper Asssociation is proud to announce that we have a NEW HOME. STHJA will be holding all of our shows starting with the September show at Haras Dos Cavaleiros! Trainers and riders will experience riding in an “A” show facility at Schooling show prices. The address for our new venue is:
Haras Dos Cavaleiros,
26427 Peden Road,
Magnolia, TX. 77355
Please check our show calendar. We had to alter a few of our dates to coincide with the Haras show schedule. The new dates for the remainder of 2017 are:
September 16-17, October 14-15, November 25-26, and December 16-17.
I am pleased to announce that Ms. Pauline Cooke has agreed to Judge the Hunters at our September 16-17, 2017 show. Cookie is a well known and highly respected Owner, Trainer, Judge, and Show Manager who works all over the USA. I am personally pleased that Cookie will participate in STHJA shows when her busy schedule allows, as we both have striven to never schedule the shows dates of the Greater Houston Hunter Jumper Association and the South Texas Hunter Jumper Association on the same weekends in the spirit of cooperation and fairness. We will continue that tradition.
In addition, our wonderful Staff Judges, Ms. Kim Queener, Ms. Lisa Nelson, Ms. Pat Wilson, and Ms. Meghan Martin will be utilized at every show in a rotating fashion.
In announcing our Hunter Judges for our first show of the Fall season, I am also pleased that we are in negotiations with Mr. Tony Font to Judge our Jumper classes on Saturday, September 16. Once we have resolved Tony’s schedule we will post the news here. Jumpers will ONLY show on SATURDAY beginning at 4:00 PM. As always, the courses will be set and riders may school AFTER 1:00 PM on Saturday. Hunters will show on Sunday starting at 8:00 AM. The prize list will remain the same, with the exception of changing class numbers for some of the Jumpers, which will be in the new prize list and entry forms available within the next few weeks.
Stall prices will be: $50.00 for a Day Stall and $60.00 for a Weekend Stall. Shavings are $8.00 a bag.
We look forward in seeing everyone in September. Here’s to a great new venue.
