  • Children's/Adult Jumpers!

    I'm hoping to compete my 5 year old WB in the Children's/Adult jumpers next year after persuasion from my trainer that i should give jumpers a shot instead of strictly eventing. I was wondering what it's like, the steps to qualify for places like WIHS Local Day and Capital Challenge etc, and what to expect. My trainer seems to think it will be a walk in the park for my horse but I just wanted to know some info and if it's any different from the schooling jumper shows. Thanks!

    Yippie! You'll love it! All you need to do for WIHS local and Capital Challenge is send in an entry (with LOTS of $$$ for CC!). The only shows you need to qualify for are Devon (I believe based on zone points), Harrisburg (NAL) and Washington (WIHS). You qualify for indoors by earning points in the Ch/Ad Classic at recognized shows that offer these classics. Not sure what you need for eventing but for the jumpers your horse will need to be recorded with the USEF.

      Ok, awesome! Thanks for your help. From what i've heard it's about $500 for entry fees for like the Capital Challlenge. Does that sound about right? Or is it more or less?

        you and your horse each need to be a member of USEF and USHJA...PLUS you have to become a member of the NAL and WIHS for the points won at classics to count...Entry fees at AA shows are easily above 500 bucks...(I believe the entry fee for the classics alone are around 250 and you usually have to compete in one or more Child/adult classes in order to compete in the classic) When I did the jumpers, I usually budgeted around 1000 bucks to compete in the child/adult division, plus the classic, plus entry/offices and a stall. Also, read the prize list very carefully because some of the child/adult classics are set at 1.15m instead of 1.10m. (its about 3 inches in difference but with a young horse that could be HUGE)

          Ok, thanks! If I were to do the classic Swan Lake Stables do you know if i would need to be a member of NAL and WIHS? Not sure if your familar with Swan Lake but there classic isn't a "big" as a show like WIHS or CC.

            You don't need to be a NAL/WIHS member to show in the classics at a show (ie Swan Lake), but if you want to earn points towards going to the finals then you need to be a member.

              you need to be a member of the NAL and WIHS for points at qualifying shows to count. if the classic is an NAL/WIHS classic, then yes you would need to be a member if you were attempting to use points earned there towards the invite list.....

                If you are from an eventing background - make sure you know the different types of classes - speed, timed first jump off, power and speed that are offered in the Child Adult Jumpers. Also, hopefully your trainer knows about the 45 second "buzzer" and how the timer situation works. Don't want you to get disqualified by not knowing the rules of the game.

                Also know that it's "formal attire" for any classics that you enter. White shirt and dark coat (black or navy). Many of the seasoned jumper riders will wear white breeches, but tan is acceptable.

                Marshall & Sterling (M&S) , North American League (NAL) and Washington Horse Show (WIHS) all offer "finals" at the end of the year. You can compete in their classics without joining their organization, but if you want to compete at the Finals, you must accumulate points and be among the roughly top 30 in the Nation to get the invitation to compete at the Finals. You can only accumulate points by joining (yes, paying their membership fee) and competing and getting ribbons. Also know that it is the horse/rider combo that earns the points. Someone else showing your horse will not help you point wise.

                All three of these groups have website...HITSSHOWS, RYEGATE are two of the three.

                With Capital Challenge - he with the fastest entry blank and check in the show office's hands - gets to go. Everyone Federal Expresses them in.

                Enjoy. And have fun.

                  I did the Children/Adult jumper's at Capital Challenge this year. The entry fee for two classes was $500 (not including stall, office fees, etc.) I'm pretty sure that I had my entry post marked on the closing date and I had no problem getting in. The classic at CC is 3'9".

                    To do Zone 3 regionals at local day, you have to be in the top 25 for zone points. If you are already entered for WIHS, you may not want to do local day, which is usually on Sunday with the adults going the next Wednesday at Washington. If you do not get into Washington, the adult champion from local day gets a wildcard entry to go downtown.
