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 - CEP Considering Dropping October USEF Date And Running An AHJA Cat II Hunt Cup Show
The Arizona Fall Classic, scheduled for October 23-25 at Westworld, has been running as a USEF Regional I (B) rated show the past few years. Along with the USEF rating comes all the USEF requirements: using licensed officials, all horses must be microchipped, all riders, trainers and owners must have completed SafeSport, etc. The cost of all of these requirements drive the cost of a horse show up for the exhibitors. CEP is asking for feedback from our valued Arizona trainers as to whether they would like to see the show as an AHJA Category II show or keep it as a USEF Regional I (B) show. Please send us a brief email at email@example.com with your input.
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!
