SHJA 2020 Year End Awards UPDATE

The SHJA Board has made a very tough decision regarding approach to the 2020 awards banquet.  Due to Covid -19, we will be holding a virtual event to celebrate the 2020 show season, in lieu of an in person banquet at Loblolly Rise Plantation.  SHJA is an affiliate organization of USHJA.  Given this affiliation, SHJA must adhere to guidance received on this matter,  to minimize putting this valuable partnership at risk.  We must do everything we can to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all of our members, trainers and board, during this uncertain time.   We hope that you all can understand how difficult this news is to share.  We also want you to know that we have been thinking of creative ways to celebrate all the special riders, horses and ponies that make SHJA great! Please see additional information below, and feel free to contact me with any question or concerns at Abby

What are we doing to celebrate this year??! The 2020 year end awards will be distributed to winners in a scheduled manner, on Sunday December 6th, at Pony Express Tack Shop.  Award winners will have the opportunity to have their picture taken with their award, in a formal outdoor setting.  In addition, SHJA will be holding a "facebook live" event that same day, to celebrate everyone's accomplishments together in a virtual setting.  We will still be producing a 2020 SHJA Awards Program, which will include program ads.  Program ads area fantastic way to recognize your rider, barn family, trainers, parents, grandparents and favorite 4 legged partners!  The 2020 program will be produced in a PDF format and circulated to the SHJA membership via email ahead of the facebook live event.  The program will also be published on SHJA facebook page and the SHJA website, following the event.
