The Colorado Hunter Jumper Foundation is pleased to announce that several scholarships will be available for 2019.

Special appreciation goes to Sarah Watson who coordinated the 2019 auction, and her team of volunteers who made it possible.

It takes more than just show personnel to make for a special event. CHJA is grateful for the support of our Medal Finals Sponsors.
