We are pleased to announce the 2021 MOHJO Challenge, a series of sponsored classes at our local shows, as a way to give back to our members. One of each of the 5 MOHJO Specialty classes will be sponsored by MOHJO at a different show, with special ribbons for 1st thru 6th place, and an engraved prize to the winner of the class. These awards may be in addition to any other awards offered by the show for the class.
The list of sponsored classes, and the scheduled show are:
MOHJO Tack Trunk Medal Ridgefield Arena July 17 – 18 OR September 25-26, more information provided closer to the date
MOHJO Jumper Classic Avalon Farms September 4-5
MOHJO Derby Happenstance Farms October 9-10

Due to the lingering impacts of the pandemic, there will not be a 2020 Awards party. However, year end ribbons and prizes will be available for pick-up at the National Equestrian Center, during the Irish Fox Stables show on February 6, 2021. We will also have an area set aside for pictures.
The 2021 Awards Party will be held Sunday, January 30, 2022 at the Pezold Banquet Center in Cottleville, MO.
Your MOJHO Board of Directors has a variety of connections to hunter/jumper sport, but we all believe that the safety and welfare of our horses, and the humans who work with them, is paramount. We also know it may be difficult to initiate a direct confrontation over an incident or a situation that just seems a little not quite right, especially if you are new to the sport. It could be a jump that seems be too close to a wall or fence, or a small pony that was just asked to jump a fence that looks taller than your 10 year old. We have established a new mailbox for you to confidentially report what you’ve observed. Your concern will be addressed by the Board anonymously. If you want a direct reply after the Board has investigated, please include that information in your email, so that someone can respond to you. Click here to go to the new mailbox; the link will also be active on the Contact Us page.
