In April 2011, the members of Greater Arkansas Hunter Jumper Association and Central Arkansas Hunter Jumper Association agreed to merge the two organizations into the now named Arkansas Hunter Jumper Association. This merger combined the interests of the area's hunter/jumper enthusiasts, riders, owners, trainers and other interested members into one endeavor.
At least 5 shows are held by AHJA and other affiliated locations in the Central Arkansas area. AHJA Shows provide classes for all levels of riders and horses, with ribbons, trophies and show Championships presented at each show. Clinics and other AHJA sponsored events are held throughout the year. A Year End Awards Banquet wraps-up the calendar year.
