About Us

The USHJA Foundation is a non-profit organization with a mission to advance and promote the hunter/jumper discipline by supporting the programs of the United States Hunter Jumper Association, Inc., and other initiatives which support the mission of the USHJA.

Your contribution will help identify and nurture up-and-coming talent in our sport.
Upon winning the Talent Search Finals-East Jacob Pope recognized how the USHJA Emerging Athletes Program helped carve his path. "It's still unbelievable to me; I wasn't expecting it at all," said Pope. "The EAP helped me go from not riding at this level to training with Andre [Dignelli and Heritage Farm]. I hope this win will help me go up another level to go on and do other things."

Your contribution will help equestrians in need of assistance.
When a firestorm destroyed Julie Winkel's home, arenas and pasture fencing she was beyond devastated. Not only had she lost 35 years' worth of memories and material things, but she was struggling to continue to care for the horses as well as operate her business. Julie turned to the Foundation for help and because of your support we were able to help.

"The USHJA Foundation came to the rescue, providing money to rebuild fencing so I could get back on my feet. I am forever grateful to have this organization of friends that were there in my darkest hour. Thank you!" —Julie Winkel

Your contribution will help preserve the history of our sport.
"The feeling of seeing generations of horsemen from children to grandparents revel in the history of the sport through the memories of the pony ring literally gave me goose bumps. It has been an honor and a privilege to help coordinate this exhibit and we have already begun working on our next exhibit."
—Bill Rube, Wheeler Museum Committee Member

Your contribution will help provide educational opportunities.
"I'm also proud to be a member of many other organizations including USHJA. I've participated in Horse Bowl and Horsemanship Standards through 4-H, and I find the Horsemanship Quiz Challenge program really similar. I love everything about horses! I think this new program is a great opportunity to improve myself both as a rider and owner of horses, as well as increase my knowledge to help me with my future goals in life."
—Chloe Bellerive, HQC Ambassador

Your contribution will help dreams be realized.
"Giving someone an education is the best gift you can give anybody, because that education can go such a long way in every direction," stated Lizzy. "Who knows? In 20 years, maybe I'll be coaching a rider and I'll be able to take something that I learned when I was 12 years old and pass it on, and hopefully they can pass it on. I want what I'm learning to make a difference and make it a better world and pass on more knowledge. Because when people are educated, they can make better decisions, which can make their horses happier and everyone happier."
—Lizzy Traband, inaugural recipient of the USHJA Foundation's Making a Dream grant
