The National Hunter/Jumper Council
of USA Equestrian
Welcome to the National Hunter/Jumper Council’s website! The NHJC is the official hunter/jumper discipline organization of USA Equestrian. As such, the NHJC represents the interests of USA Equestrian members involved in hunter/jumper activities. For many years the USDF and the USCTA have represented dressage and combined training riders respectively. Until the formation of the NHJC in mid-1996, hunter/jumper exhibitors lacked specific representation under the USA Equestrian umbrella. Now, hunter/jumper enthusiasts of all levels are represented on a national level and at regional levels. Our mission is to be the official national discipline organization for all hunter/jumper competitors, horse shows and organizations in the United States.
A 38-member Board of Governors directs the NHJC. Chairmen and Vice-Chairmen of the 12 USA Equestrian hunter/jumper zones, eight active athletes, and the Chairmen of six USA Equestrian Discipline Committees-Hunter, Jumper, Junior Hunter, Hunter/Jumper Pony, Equitation and Hunter Breeding-make up the Board.
