The High Desert Hunter Jumper Association (HDHJA) celebrates the accomplishments of Junior, Amateur, and Professional riders and their horses every year at five horse shows and at the year-end awards banquet. As a non-profit organization, HDHJA relies on sponsorship to assist in funding the shows and banquet, and is volunteer driven by local horse enthusiasts. 

Our Mission


The mission of the High Desert Hunter Jumper Association (HDHJA) is to enhance and stimulate the sport of riding and showing Hunters and Jumpers in Central Oregon through safe, consistent and fair competition. 



Our Vision 


The vision of HDHJA is to encourage education, horsemanship and sportsmanship. It strives to help local horse enthusiast's of all skill levels progress in an effort to ensure the Central Oregon region is a destination for the Hunter/Jumper industry. 

About Us


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.
