Dear NCHJA Members,
We want to reach out during this time of uncertainty and let you all know we are thinking about you and our horse community in general. We know everyone is eager for things to return to normal as quickly as possible. We realize that many of you rely on the horse industry as livelihood and we understand the hardship that presents.
On March 25th USEF extended it's 30-day suspension of all events to last through May 3rd. In keeping with our original decision to comply with USEF, we will not sanction any shows or count any points toward NCHJA year end awards during this time.
On a more optimistic note, we are continuing to plan this years Annual Horse Show, June 24th - June 28th, in hopes that all will be well and life will have resumed a sense of normalcy by mid-summer. We have every hope that this dreaded virus will be eradicated, our families safe and our lives back on track.
If you have questions regarding any of the above please feel free to reach out to any of our board members (currently all homeschooling their kids and mucking stalls).
Catherine Schlaeppi, President
North Carolina Hunter Jumper Association Board
