Blenheim EquiSports to Host Children’s and Adult Amateur Jumper West Regional Finals
Unique Nations’ Cup Style Competition September 9-13
Blenheim EquiSports is pleased to announce that the Children’s and Adult Amateur Jumper West Regional Championships will be at the Blenheim Fall Tournament September 9-13 in San Juan Capistrano.
Adult Amateur and Children’s Jumper riders had long hoped for their own championship, and in 2013, the USHJA turned their hopes into reality by initiating the Regional Championships. Since its debut, the series has enjoyed huge success. Held in a Nations’ Cup-style format, the team competition offers a unique introduction to the team experience. Comprised of four rounds held over three days, the riders compete as teams with individual scores counting toward the overall team score. A team consists of a minimum of three horse and rider combinations, but not more than four. The team element, new for many of the riders, has been challenging and exciting, and very popular.
The Championships consist of both team and individual competitions, and each of the West Region’s four zones is eligible to send a minimum of two teams of Children’s competitors and two teams of Adult Amateur competitors. In 2014, nearly 140 of the country’s top Children’s and Adult Amateur riders competed for individual and team medals in the Regional Championships. Each of the 2014 Children’s Jumper Individual Champions garnered a spot in the Emerging Athletes Program Regional Training Session this coming summer. Again this year the individual gold medalists in the Children’s section will earn a coveted spot in a 2016 EAP Regional Training Session.
Riders may accumulate points at any USEF licensed event offering Children’s and Adult Jumper classes at 1.10m – 1.15m, but may not compete in any jumper class over 1.20m during the qualifying period. For each Regional Championship, the qualifying period will begin the day following the conclusion of the Regional Championship and end 45 days prior to the first day of the Regional Championship the following year, which will be around July 30th this year.
More class details available in the prize list.
