Medal Requirements:
Medal Finals Qualifications for Champ Show:
Due to the number of shows that were cancelled from rain & the VS Virus this year, the GSDHJA board has elected to relax the qualification requirements for all Medal Finals classes at Champ Show. If you have competed in a particular medal class during the 2023 season, you are now qualified to compete in that medal finals regardless of how many points were earned. Note: all cross entry restrictions will still apply.

Point Correction Deadlines:

Below is a reminder about the deadlines for any point inquiries or corrections copied from the GSDHJA Rulebook.  Please submit any inquiries to before the cut off date as we must abide strictly to these deadlines in fairness to all competitors and don’t want to see anyone miss out on their well deserved points!
Deadline for submitting year end point corrections/inquiries are as follows:

JULY 1st – for all shows from the start of the season through May 30th.
SEPTEMBER 1st – for all shows from June 1st through August 30th.
OCTOBER 1st – for all shows from Sept 1st through Sept 30th.

Members have 10 days upon the posting of the Championship Show Results to submit corrections/inquiries regarding championship show points unless the Board of Directors elects to extend this date. After that time, THE POINTS WILL STAND.

Anyone wishing to submit a waiver for a horse or rider needing to request an exception to compete at this years champ show must email their request to by September 23, 2023 for consideration by the GSDHJA board.
