Championship Show Qualifications/A Show Rule

With so much excitement for this year’s Championship Show we would like to open up the opportunity for as many competitors as possible to be included in this year’s finals while protecting the ongoing efforts of our members that have been competing for points all season long.  Any competitor that is qualified for the Championship Show may compete in those classes they are qualified for regardless of the “A show rule”.  However, if horse or rider is in violation of the “A Show Rule” they will not be eligible for 2021 Year End Awards.

Trainers must submit a list of riders that will be competing that would otherwise be in violation of the “A show rule” to support@gsdhja.org  prior to the competition start date.  The A Show Rule is listed below for reference.

IF riders* and/or horses** also compete on the “A” circuit, they must meet ONE of the following two conditions in order to compete at the championship show.

1) have competed in at least THREE (3) GSDHJA recognized shows during the current show season OR

2) have competed in an EQUAL number of GSDHJA recognized county shows than “A” circuit shows.

*Riders must meet this requirement in order to compete in any equitation class, medal finals, and/or classes that year end points are assigned to the rider (walk trot through green rider).

Petitions for Waivers to Compete

Anyone needing to submit a waiver for special circumstances may submit their request to support@gsdhja.org prior to competition.
