GSDHJA is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and as stated in our March 17 announcement we will be following the recommendations and timelines given by the United States Equestrian Federation.

USEF has extended their ban on competitions and like activities through May 3, 2020.

In keeping with recommendations from USEF, USHJA, and all major sports organizations GSDHJA strongly recommends that organizers suspend all GSDHJA sanctioned competitions and events through May 3, 2020.  For those competitions that do run as of March 16, 2020, there will be no accumulation of points, scores, qualifications, or rankings toward any GSDHJA division for the mentioned timeline and will remain in alignment with USEF timelines.  The COVID-19 pandemic remains very fluid and GSDHJA will continue to monitor USEF guidelines and will keep you updated of any changes.

The GSDHJA board of directors is fully aware of the hardships we are all confronted with during this challenging time and appreciate all the efforts being made by our members and community to come together and stay compliant with recommendations to keep ourselves and each other safe and healthy.

In an effort to exercise an abundance of caution, the GSDHJA Board has decided to reschedule the upcoming General Meeting to a future date to be announced….

The 2019 Champ Show Premium is available for download here.

We doubled the size of the premium this year since its our 20th Anniversary Show – but doing so made it cost prohibited to print and mail one to every member.  A complementary printed version of the Show Program will be given to all exhibitors competing at the Championship Show.


This year is the GSDHJA 20th Anniversary Championship Show! We are striving to make this a very special, very memorable event for our members!

Rather than the standard premium, we are creating a “keepsake” 20th Anniversary Show Program that we hope our exhibitors will cherish for years to come. We will also have some new features and events going on during the show that we will be telling everyone about in the coming weeks. We are really excited and think you are going to enjoy them!

But to make this the best Championship Show yet, sponsorships are vital, and we are hoping you will support our effort!

We have created some new categories of sponsorships that will give business owners more advertising bang for their buck.
We have also put together a “Barn Spirit” sponsorship that includes a half page congratulations ad, free box in the grandstand arena and sponsorship of one class for a very affordable price.

Please click here for a printable PDF of all your sponsorship options! Sponsorships start as low as $100

In order to get your sponsorship in the Show Program we must receive them by Sept 5th.
