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.
Important Message to Members
from the MHJA Board
May 6, 2020
The MHJA board has decided to suspend the remaining 2020 membership year. The decision was not an easy one to make but with the cancellation of shows the last few months and the uncertainty of future horse shows, we have decided to cancel. The cancellation includes point tabulations, year end awards, membership and horse show sanctioning.
Also due to the economic impact of Covid 19 we will not be holding the Endless Summer Horse Show as we know it. There is too much uncertainty in the level of sponsorships we can obtain and the projected increase in costs required to stay within the state mandated guidelines.
Anyone who has paid 2020 sanctioning or their 2020 membership can either apply their sanctioning/membership to 2021 or request a refund.
The board is working on possibly having a clinic/mock horse show to be held on the August 7-9 dates.
We will get information out to everyone in next few weeks about the potential clinic.
Stay safe everyone and we hope to see all of you in the 2021 show season.

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.
