HIGH DESERT HUNTER JUMPER ASSOCIATION
2021 Board Members
As a volunteer driven organization, we rely on the dedication and expertise of our local horse professionals and horse enthusiasts. We thank them for their time and dedication in assisting HDJHA and its members in achieving the goals and visions of the organization.
Germaine Dougherty has been involved with the hunter/jumper industry since 2002. She has spent most of her career on the East Coast, working as a professional rider and trainer. She moved to Bend in 2019 to pursue a job at Some Day Farm, and has been actively involved with HDHJA ever since.
Terry has been involved with horses most of her life. She grew up in California riding with Butch and Lu Thomas as a junior and later with Carleton Brooks as an amateur. After an 18 year hiatus in Michigan, Terry moved back to the West Coast in 2017, settling in Bend. She became involved with HDHJA right away, first on the Scholarship Committee and then on the Points Committee. For the past several years she has served as our Horse Show Steward. Terry can be found most days happily riding at Some Day Farm.
D’Anza has been a lover of all things horses since she was little. She is a mom of two girls that equally love to ride. Watching her girls gain so much from not only the horse but also their barn friends, she knew right away that continuing to help foster the riding community was going to help ensure the girls were given the chance to ride, practice and experience a community that was sure to help support them in all they do. HDHJA has been an amazing community for all that are involved and D’Anza is happy to volunteer and serve on the board and give back, help it sustain and help it grow. D’Anza rides with Sara Katz at West Ridge Stables with her super horse, Joey!
After a childhood spent pining for horses, Jennie was able to fulfill her dream of horse ownership as an adult. Since her first experience jumping, she has devoted more of her time, energy and resources than is likely wise to the sport she has come to love. Jennie and Mesa began their partnership in July of 2016 and, with the expert help of Some Day Farm, have been making slow but steady progress ever since. Jennie is honored and excited to serve as the HDHJA treasurer and is eager to give back to such a remarkable organization.
