CHJA Establishes Outreach Program

Several years of work on the part of the CHJA Strategic Planning Committee became a reality with the adoption of a package of Bylaws and Rule Changes which will create the CHJA Outreach Program. Juniors and adults can join CHJA as an Outreach Member. Outreach Members will receive an email subscription to the CHJA Newletter and will be eligible to compete in the Outreach Year End Program. The fee for Outreach Membership will be $35.00 per year for 2019.

Editor's Note: The following are excerpts from an interview conducted by Jen Lewis with Helen Gould earlier this year. It is part of a larger effort from CHJA to gather important information about the formation and growth of our association through the years. If you know of someone who should be interviewed or would like more information, please contact

Helen:  I came here to go to school at CU. [From New York state]

Jen:  And did you go to school?

H:  Mm-Hmm

Electronic Vet, LLC

Safe | Simple | Secure

Technology. As reliant upon it as we are in every other aspect of our lives, is it missing in the equestrian industry? In 2014, Barbara Blasko, MD realized that paper documents containing equine medical records are most commonly produced for the purpose of competition entry, as well as general equine management. This problem leaves owners, trainers, riders and competitions vulnerable to losing the paper documents and/or the potential for falsification of any document. Thus, Electronic Vet, LLC (“eVet”) was born.

Copper Penny Memories

Rainbow Through the Horse's Ears

It's hard to believe that our Copper Penny Horse Shows were about a month ago but here we are - school has started and the days are definitely feeling a bit cooler. This year, CHJA tried a new format by eliminating the A-rated shows in Estes Park opting instead for two weeks of traditional locally rated classes with a number of special classes and events.
