Please note this rule change only affects riders who also compete on the “A” circuit.

With fewer multi-day shows being offered at Horse Park and some early season show cancellations it was proposed that we lower the number of county shows required to attend the Championship show.  After polling the GSDHJA trainers (2/3 voted to reduce qualifications) it was decided that the “A” Circuit Rule would be amended this year (2018) to the following:


IF riders*/horses** ALSO compete on the “A” circuit, they must meet ONE of the following 2 conditions in order to compete at the championship show.

1)  Have competed in at least THREE (3) GSDHJA recognized shows during the current show season OR
2)  have competed in an EQUAL number of GSDHJA recognized county shows as “A” circuit shows.

*Riders must meet this requirement in order to compete in any equitation class, medal finals, and/or classes that year end points are assigned to the rider (walk trot through green rider).
**Horses must meet this requirement in order to compete in any Hunter or Jumper class (except walk/trot through green rider) including the Mini Prix, Hunter Derbies and other spotlight/stakes classes.
