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.
We are gearing up for the 2018
MHJA Endless Summer horse
show and we need YOUR help!
I think it is fair to say we have a great time at the MHJA Endless Summer horse show!! The exhibitor party, pizza party, derby, mini prix and exhibitor bags are just of few of the things that make this horse show so FUN!!!
Last year we asked all the barns to chip in to put together baskets for the Chinese auction. The response was fantastic!!! We had a variety of basket themes!! Thanks to everyone who contributed!!
We would love for the barns to put together the baskets again this year!
…this year we are asking you to go just a bit further…
In addition to the baskets, we are asking you to ask your vet, farrier and feed store or anyone else, to sponsor a division or class at the horse show.
See the MHJA sponsor form for pricing. You can email Rachelle Henderson at Rachelle713@gmail.com if you have any questions on the process.
FOR EVERY $350 IN SPONSORSHIPS YOU SECURE, YOU WILL RECEIVE A FREE STALL!
Just complete the sponsor form found on our website and mail the form and the check to the address listed on the form or you can email the form and pay online @ mhja.us. Please make sure we have contact information for the sponsor. We will need to send thank you letters!
Please help us make this year’s horse show even better!
If you have any questions, please email Rachelle Henderson – Rachelle713@gmail.com
Thank you to all the sponsors and participants of the 2017 MHJA Endless Summer Horse Show!!!!

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!
- Don't forget to check the announcements page for MHJA news and the MHJA Horse Show page and Horse Show sponsors page.
Check out the calendar page for upcoming events and sanctioned horse shows.
MHJA has been accepted in the SHOW Program. By collecting proof of purchase seals from Southern States, Legends and Triple Crown feeds, equestrians
can help the organization receive 25 cents for each POP or $10 for each ton. More information can be found on the Announcements/Newsletters
- Junior members in grades 10-12 are eligible to compete for our annual scholarship to help with post-secondary costs.
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.
