The highest level of competition that we offer at our member show series is known as the "C" Circuit show rating. The "C" circuit show provides a great starting point for novice exhibitors to develop the skill and confidence they will need when they move on to compete at the advanced levels of showing on the "A" circuit. Our classes are also designed to give the more experienced "A" circuit riders the opportunity to fine tune their skills and or to "school" their young and/or green horses prior to, and during, the regular "A" show season. HDHJA is now a USHJA Outreach affiliate, to learn more about the USHJA Outreach Program click here.
