April 1 - NMHJA And CEP Remain Hopeful About The NMHJA Summer Opener In Late May
The New Mexico Hunter Jumper Association and Collman Equestrian Productions remain hopeful that the ban on USEF-licensed competitions will be lifted in time for the 2020 NMHJA Summer Opener to take place on May 28-31 at the beautiful HIPICO facility in Santa Fe, New Mexico. CEP is working on the prize list and will have it available online soon. CEP's Chris Collman stated today, "while we are all very concerned about the COVID-19 pandemic, and we strongly encourage everyone to follow the latest CDC and WHO recommendations, we are also chomping at the bit, so to speak, to get back to some semblance of normalcy and for us, it's getting back to horse showing!" Stay tuned to the CEP website, CEP Facebook page and the NMHJA website and Facebook pages for up-to-the-minute news on this show.
March 17 - A Very Important Request From CEP ... Please Read To The End
In this time of great uncertainty, one thing is perfectly clear … many of the staff that work at horse shows, both locally and around the country, are being negatively impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. As more and more horse shows are either choosing to or being forced to cancel, these dedicated and hard-working staff members are losing their only source of income. Many already live a sort of gypsy lifestyle, traveling from show to show and existing check to check. Right now, with the cancellation of the two weeks of Scottsdale Spring Horse Shows, I know of two local Arizona horse show workers that are unable to pay their rent for the month of April. Worse yet, with the cancellation of events into April and perhaps beyond, they may face dire consequences down the road.
In the words of USHJA President Mary Babick in her recent press release, “Showing our horses is a bright light at the end of a dark tunnel. While we are looking forward to that, let us not forget that for those whose incomes depend on showing, this may be a very tough time. As a community, it would be a great thing for the strong to assist those who are in need.”
Along those lines and in support, if you sent in a deposit for the 2020 Scottsdale Spring Horse Shows and would be interested in helping those staff members that are struggling right now, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us that you would like to donate all or a portion of your deposit to this effort, and we’ll see that the donated monies get to the horse show workers that desperately need it, starting with the local staff that you have come to know and love, and hopefully spreading to others in need in our state. Thank you!
March 14 - New Mexico Hunter Jumper Association Spring Fling Horse Show Officially Canceled
The NMHJA has decided to cancel the 2020 NMHJA Spring Fling Horse Show, originally scheduled for April 3-5 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. With the loss of USEF licensing and recognition, as well as the current state of the COVID-19 outbreak, it was felt that the best interests of the membership would be served by canceling this show and looking forward to the 2020 NMHJA Summer Opener, scheduled for May 29-31 at the beautiful HIPICO Santa Fe. Any entries and deposits that were submitted will be shredded. Please feel free to contact CEP at if you have any questions.
