March 28 - Arizona Season Finale I To Host USHJA Zone 8 SW Finals
The 2013 USHJA Zone 8 Southwest Finals will be held at the 2013 Arizona Season Finale I Horse Show on November 13-17 at the Westworld Equestrian Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. Combined with the second week (Arizona Season Finale II on November 20-24) hosting the Arizona Hunter Jumper Association Medal Finals and the Greenway / CEP Equitation Classic Finals, these two weeks of USEF “A” rated shows promises to be the best two weeks in Arizona this year! The prize list will be available in September.
March 18 - Arizona Spring Classic & Hunt Cup April Prize Lists Available Online
The prize list for the April 14th Hunt Cup (AHJA Category II) and the April 18-21 Arizona Spring Classic (USEF ‘A’ rated) are now available online on the Horse Shows page. Both shows will be held at the Horseshoe Park and Equestrian Center in Queen Creek, Arizona. Prize lists will not be mailed out, and can only be gotten online. Entries for both shows close April 8th. If you need a hard copy mailed to you, email CEP at firstname.lastname@example.org and include your name and address, and one will be put in the mail to you.
December 24 - Greenway / CEP Equitation Classic Introduced
Now that CEP will be hosting the AHJA Finals for the next three years, CEP and Greenway Saddlery have decided to re-focus the Greenway / CEP Equitation Series to an area that has been lacking in recent years. CEP’s Chris Collman says, “while I was standing at the Main Hunter Ring at the Colorado Horse Park this past September, watching Arizona-resident Jeffrey Tolson win the ASPCA Maclay Regional over a course I designed, it struck me that we don’t offer anything of this caliber in Arizona. We have progressively been catering to a level of rider with less experience and less ability, while forgetting that there are several top-level riders, like Jeffrey, that live and compete right here in Arizona. After discussions with Jayne and Cindy at Greenway Saddlery, our title sponsor, it was decided to change the series to a single class catering to the very upper level of equitation in Arizona.” Thus, the Greenway / CEP Equitation Classic was born.

December 13 - AHJA Finals Will Be Held In Scottsdale For Three Years
CEP and the Arizona Hunter Jumper Association have agreed to hold the AHJA Finals during the two weeks of the Arizona Season Finale Horse Shows in Scottsdale in 2013, 2014 and 2015. CEP’s Chris Collman says, “this commitment on AHJA’s part to allow CEP to hold the finals in Scottsdale for the next three years is great news. It will allow both of us to invest the time, money and energy into making it the best it can be.” The determination as to which week of the November shows it will be held will be announced as some of the details get finalized. With the addition of a second week in November, CEP hopes that the Arizona Season Finale Horse Shows will grow and become more prestigious, especially with the addition of the AHJA Medal Finals for the next three years.
