Celebrate a Season of Achievement!
Each year, the Washington State Hunter Jumper Association holds its
Annual Awards Banquet to celebrate the accomplishments of
its member riders and horses. Awards in both the
WSHJA State and National Points Programs
are presented. The banquet is held in attractive venues and features
wonderful dinners prepared by professional chefs and caterers. For many
members and trainers, the Awards Banquet is a highlight of the show season.
Winning can be attributed to many hours of hard work and
training, early mornings in the saddle, and the untiring support of family
and friends. And of course, none of it would be possible without the fabulous
horses that we ride. The WSHJA Annual Awards Banquet is our way of
bringing the membership together to celebrate the love of the sport and the
love of the horse!

A highly anticipated element of the Annual Awards Banquet is our silent auction,
which helps to raise money for the
WSHJA Scholarship Program. Despite tough economic times,
our members have shown outstanding generosity and support for this program
to benefit junior and amateur riders. And there is always something
fun and exciting to bid on!
Volunteers and Sponsors Recognized
The Awards Banquet is also our way of saying "thank you" to the many
volunteers who give their time and energy to the association throughout the
year, helping to organize our events and competitions. We also highlight the
valuable contributions of our sponsors, who help make the competition and
the WSHJA Awards Points Programs possible.
