What is the USHJA Outreach Program?

 

Greetings fellow equestrians!  

The Quail Run Horse Centre, Inc. and Urban Equine Events, LLC are very pleased to announce the offering of USHJA Outreach shows at our events in 2017.  What is an Outreach show you might ask?  It is an excellent way to expand the base of our sport and encourage more riding enthusiasts to participate in a competitive enviroment.  The USHJA has created this program to bridge the gap that exists between the unrated shows and the rated circuits, and to provide "members at any level of membership with an opportunity to earn national recognition in classes from walk/trot/canter to 3'0" hunter, jumper and medal competition at various types of competition. The program is designed to celebrate riders as they advance through the competitive experience." -ushja.org.  

The types of classes offered range from walk/trot/canter classes to 3'0" hunter, jumper, and medal classes.  

Here are some cool facts:

  • You do not need to be a member of the USHJA in order to compete!*
  • Your horse does not need to be recorded with the USHJA in order to compete!
  • You can earn points and National recognition for competing in USHJA Outreach classes!*

*You MUST be a member of the USHJA at the minimum level of Outreach membership ($35/year) to earn national points and to compete in the Outreach Medal classes.  

 

Here is a list of classes offered by the USHJA Outreach Program.  NOTE: Not all classes held at all QR and UEE shows.  Please refer to the show schedule.  

Outreach Hunter Classes

  • USHJA Outreach Hunters 18" or Crossrail
  • USHJA Outreach Hunters 2'0"
  • USHJA Outreach Hunters 2'6"

Quail Run and UEE are very excited about offering these opportunities at our shows with the hopes of growing the base of our sport and encouraging more riders to take advantage of what rated shows have to offer.  Better footing, better officials, better jumps, and an overall improved experience.  Additionally, both QR and UEE have teamed up with the Omaha Equestrian Foundation (PRODUCERS OF THE HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL FEI WORLD CUP FINALS!!) and their mission of growing the sport both for exhibitors and spectators in the Midwest.  Check out the following letter that is included in the UEE Prize List.
