Winter Series Shows

These show are held at home from November-March mostly indoors. Classes go from walk-trot and poles up to 3′ jumping. These are small shows and are a great way to get riders in to the ring during the winter months. All winter series shows are held on Sundays.

LMHJA Summer Shows

LMHJA shows are hosted between May-September. Riders are encouraged to join the Lake Michigan Hunter Jumper Association to accumulate points for year end awards. Every November, there is a banquet to celebrate the season. All of these shows are 2 days (Saturday-Sunday) and have levels from walk-trot/poles up to 3’6″ jumping. These are a great place for riders to begin their showing careers.

Off Grounds Shows:

Each year we make a point to travel to shows that are off grounds. Places we have gone the last few years include Woodbine, Meadowview, Waterloo, and the World Equestrian Center. In the spring, riders commit to what shows they plan to go so we can make sure we have enough commitment to go. These are the shows that shots/coggins are mandatory as well as a show or exclusive lease.
