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.
This and That
Some exciting new things are happening with our organization again this year. As promised, we're working to make MHJA bigger and better than ever!
Last day to dispute points for the 2014-2015 show season is October 31.
Check out the calendar page for upcoming events and sanctioned horse shows.

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.
