WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS YEAR?

Blenheim EquiSports was picked to host the inaugural AON/USHJA National Championships, which this year replaces the traditional hunter/jumper schedule offered in years past.

This year, qualified hunter and jumper riders who enter and receive an invite to the AON/USHJA National Championships will have an opportunity to compete at an one-of-a-kind event at a venue, and in a city, that is truly unique. And The Las Vegas National CSI4*-W will continue to host FEI classes, the Markel Insurance 1.45m Grand Prix Series Final, the Show Jumping Hall of Fame West Coast Championships and the CPHA Foundation/WCE Equestrians Medal Final.

To view the tentative time schedule, please click here.

WHERE IS THE EVENT?

At the one & only South Point Arena & Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Where else can you mix with international show jumping stars, compete, bowl, see a movie, visit the spa, eat in one of 11 restaurants, watch the show from your hotel room - all under the same roof where your horse is stabled in permanent stalls? Only in Vegas!

HOW DO I ENTER THE AON/USHJA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS?

It’s easy! YOU ARE ALREADY EARNING POINTS.

Good points accrued at competitions with start dates from Dec. 1, 2017, through Sept. 9, 2018, will count toward qualifying, but only for those who enter by Sept. 14.

TO ENTER - COMPLETE THE ENTRY BLANK & SEND IN $50 BY SEPT 14th, 2018
It’s quick to enter online here. Or if you prefer, click here to print the entry blank.

The fee is only $50 per horse - so you can enter in any division that you’ve earned points in.  Don’t worry if you are down the list, you may still earn an invite. Go ahead and take a gamble - it’s Vegas!

AFTER SEPT 14th!
After championship entries are due, you will hear back from Ryegate Show Services about where you stand on the qualifying list. If you’re accepted, the next step is to follow their instructions which will tell you where to send your Entry Deposit and Stall Reservation payment.  We hope to see you in Las Vegas!

On the bubble?  Don’t worry – we will have a list of competitors notified by Ryegate, so there is no Late Entry Fee for those notified after October 15, 2018.

HOW DO I RESERVE A STALL BY THE DEADLINE OF OCTOBER 15, 2018?

AON/USHJA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS COMPETITORS
