2014 Show Season dates
The Arkansas Hunter Jumper Association is hosting a two-day clinic with Julie Winkel on November 15-16 at Applewood Farm in Little Rock, AR.
Julie has been a licensed Hunter, Equitation, Hunter Breeding and Jumper Judge since 1984 and has officiated at prestigious events such as Harrisburg, Washington International, Capital Challenge and the Hampton Classic. She has also designed courses and judged the ASPCA Maclay Finals and the USEF Medal Finals.
Julie has been an active member of both the USHJA and USEF serving as a board member and on various committees including the Trainer Certification for USHJA, the Equitation Task Force, the Emerging Athlete Program and the Trainer Symposium Committee. She owns and operates Maplewood, Inc. in Reno, NV. which is a 150 acre training, sales and breeding facility, standing her two Grand Prix jumpers-Osilvis and Cartouche Z. She gives clinics and judges throughout the country and writes a monthly column for PRACTICAL HORSEMAN’S “Conformation Clinic”
The clinic will include two days of instruction and a conformation clinic on Saturday evening.
As our association grows and we host larger shows, it takes more help to keep things running smoothly. There are many jobs both large and small that make these shows possible and anyone can help. AHJA requires a minimum of four volunteer hours for the year in order for a member to be eligible for year-end awards. This is very easy! We have plenty of jobs including: ribbon/prize table, gate person, warmup ring help, jump crew, help at the secretary desk, setting up and taking down jumps, etc.
Samantha and Bridie McClusky are our 2014 Volunteer Coordinators. Please contact Sam at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-241-6921 to sign-up to volunteer at our next show.
Thank you for your help!
