Welcome to MHJA
The Mountaineer Hunter Jumper Association was founded in 1998 to promote riders in the tri-state area (Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio) that show on the local level. Our mission is to instill a foundation for riders to help further their knowledge and involvement in the horse community and promote a healthy approach to competition.

MHJA offers a Trainer Assistance Program for its professional members. The purpose of this program is to help local trainers who encounter a hardship in
which they are unable to operate their business at regular capacity. Examples of hardships would include serious injury/illness or extensive property damage. Applicants would be eligible for
a grant of $1,000. This would be a donation on behalf of the MHJA to the applying trainer and their business as a way of helping them get through their time of need.
