September 7 - Updated Covid-19 Action Plan Version 2, Now Available Online
The Covid-19 Action Plan has been updated with Version 2 and is now available on the Horse Shows / Arizona page. The major change is the requirement that the USEF Release Form now only needs to be completed by participants (trainers, agents, owners and riders) and can be submitted electronically (email or fax), mailed in with entries or brought to the office upon arrival. Competition back numbers cannot be released without this form on file for every person listed on an entry blank. No longer will grooms, braiders and relatives of minor riders be required to fill these out. Also, wristbands will no longer be issued or required for entry. See the updated plan for exact specifics.

The prize list and all related documents for the Arizona Fall Classic (USEF Regional I / Jumper 1), scheduled for October 23-25 and the Arizona Season Finale I & II (both USEF National / Jumper 2), scheduled for November 12-15 and 18-22, are now available online.

August 30 - Greenway / CEP Equitation Classic Final Qualifications Adjusted For 2020
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and all of the canceled and affected shows this year, the 2020 Greenway / CEP Equitation Classic Final, scheduled to be held during the Arizona Season Finale II on Friday, November 20th, will adjust two of the qualifying requirements. Only one (1) point is needed to qualify for the finals (instead of six) and all qualifying classes will count, regardless of the number of exhibitors that competed or completed. Three of the five qualifying classes held during the Arizona Winter Circuit in Tucson back in February and early March had classes with only one or two entries, and CEP does not wish to penalize those riders by denying their qualifying opportunity. See the Greenway / CEP Classics page for a list of current qualifiers and remember, there are still five more chances to qualify at the Arizona Fall Classic, Arizona Season Finale I and Arizona Season Finale II.
August 8 - Arizona Fall Classic In October And Arizona Season Finale I & II In November Still Planned
The Arizona Fall Classic, scheduled for October 23-25 at Westworld, is still being planned. This USEF Regional I (B) rated competition takes place in two rings over three days and will offer 2'0" hunters up to 1.20m jumpers. The Arizona Season Finale I and II, scheduled for November 12-15 and 18-22 at Westworld, is also still being planned. The first week is a USEF National (A) rated competition. The second week is also a USEF National (A) rated competition that is hosting the 2020 Greenway / CEP Equitation Challenge Final and the 2020 USHJA Zone 8 HOTY Championship. The shows will offer classes from Walk-Trot Poles up to 1.30 jumpers. All three shows will be held as long as the State of Arizona, Maricopa County and City Of Scottsdale all allow such.
August 4 - USHJA Announces Cancellation Of The AON / USHJA National Championship Horse Show
The AON / USHJA National Championship Horse Show, scheduled for November 16-22 in Las Vegas, has been canceled. You can read more about it by clicking here or going to the USHJA website.
August 4 - CEP Regretfully Announces The Cancellation Of The NMHJA Fall Festival
The NMHJA Fall Festival, scheduled for September 25-27 in Santa Fe, has been canceled. After the New Mexico governor's announcement over the weekend that the state would remain shut down until at least the end of August, it was determined that it would be in the best interests of all involved to cancel the competition now to let people make alternate plans for that weekend. "This entire year has been a tremendous disappointment for the New Mexico hunter jumper community, with all three club shows as well as the Santa Fe Summer Circuit being canceled due to the Covid-19 outbreak," says CEP's Chris Collman. "All I can recommend is that we all lick our wounds and look forward to a prosperous 2021." CEP and NMHJA will publish next year's schedule of shows as soon as it is available from the USEF as 2021 is a date rotation year and many date conflicts will need to be resolved before these show dates become official.
July 28 - 2020 CHJA Copper Penny Horse Shows Finish Strong
The 2020 CHJA Copper Penny Horse Shows finished strong this year, with record numbers of entries in the Special Hunter Classics and Jumper Derbies on the final Sunday. Entry counts for some of the fun classes exceeded 40, and the Jumper Team Relay saw 75 horse and rider combinations! It was one for the record books. CHJA and CEP would like to thank everyone, including trainers, riders, owners, sponsors and donors who supported the shows. We look forward to many more years of successful shows for the CHJA membership!
