CEP Regretfully Announces The Cancellation Of The NMHJA Fall Festival

The NMHJA Fall Festival, scheduled for September 25-27 in Santa Fe, has been canceled. After the New Mexico governor's announcement over the weekend that the state would remain shut down until at least the end of August, it was determined that it would be in the best interests of all involved to cancel the competition now to let people make alternate plans for that weekend. "This entire year has been a tremendous disappointment for the New Mexico hunter jumper community, with all three club shows as well as the Santa Fe Summer Circuit being canceled due to the Covid-19 outbreak," says CEP's Chris Collman. "All I can recommend is that we all lick our wounds and look forward to a prosperous 2021." CEP and NMHJA will publish next year's schedule of shows as soon as it is available from the USEF as 2021 is a date rotation year and many date conflicts will need to be resolved before these show dates become official.


Happy Father’s Day


🇺🇸Have a Safe and Happy Memorial Day🇺🇸


We are sorry to announce the cancellation of our Summer Show. We hope for better news for our Fall show in September

NMHJA Summer Opener Canceled

Last night, the Governor of New Mexico issued a revised health order for her state, and this order did nothing to change the current ban on horse shows, which are considered a "mass gathering" that takes place at a "Performance Venue". Therefore, we are forced to cancel the NMHJA Summer Opener, which was scheduled for June 4-7 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. If you sent in an entry, it will be shredded along with any payment that was attached, as no checks have been deposited and no credit cards have been run. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to trying again in the fall with the NMHJA Fall Festival on September 25-27.

Please Read. Thank you CEP for some clarifications

Response To Recent Article In Heels Down Magazine

An article recently appeared in Heels Down Magazine, written by Becky Shipps, titled "Horse Shows Are Going To Suck". In it, the author talks about the new guidelines for horse shows being implemented by the USEF that will, in her words, have her asking herself as a competitor "why even bother", referring to starting to show again. She writes:

"Social distancing and safety protocols must continue to happen. Horse show staff, grooms, judges, and competitors need to be safe, nobody is disputing that. But what happens when you take out all the personal interaction from a horse show? As a competitor, you meet your horse at a mounting block, warm up in a ring with nearly nobody around, and then go into a ring to compete by yourself with nobody around. Sure, your trainer, groom, and one family member get to watch your round (along with the jump crew and judge), but that’s it. Your barn mates and friends can’t watch you, you can’t watch them, and you can’t watch anyone else in your division or any other division because there is no spectating allowed."

The USEF recently released an in-depth Covid-19 Action Plan that clearly outlines the mandatory requirements and strong recommendations it feels are necessary for our sport to start back up again. Every USEF-licensed horse show is required, as a condition of USEF approval, to follow this Action Plan. Unfortunately, the author has failed to understand some of the points in the plan and has published this article with incorrect information that may influence competitors into choosing to not attend any horse shows. To address some of these points in the article:

As a competitor, you have the option of meeting your horse at a mounting block as stated in the article, or you can mount your horse in the barn area and ride it to the ring, or you can tack up your own horse and bring it to the ring mounted or unmounted ... your choice. Horse shows will be required to restrict the number of people that can accompany each horse to the warm-up ring and the back gate ... a recommended number has been three (assuming your trainer, a groom and a family member or some combination thereof) but is only a recommendation ... it could be two if the areas are very small or it could be four or more if the areas are larger and can accommodate social distancing requirements. All warm-up rings will be monitored by horse show staff to insure they don't get too crowded, both with horses and with those on the ground. Horse shows can choose to limit the number of horses and people on the ground as it suits the size and layout of the warm-up areas ... you won't be warming up with "nearly nobody around". Barn mates and friends will indeed be allowed to come from the barn area and watch you compete. They won't be allowed in the warm-up rings or near the back gates, but they can certainly be ringside, practicing the proper social distancing, and cheer you on. The statement "no spectating allowed" in the USEF's Covid-19 Action Plan refers to the general public ... horse shows will not be allowed to sell tickets, seating or admission to the general public.

​The author continued in her article "There is no going back to the barn – with so many touch points, even with excessive cleaning there’s some big safety question marks there. You don’t get to care for your horse (unless you are the groom) or rehash your ride (good or bad) with your friends."

This is absolutely false ... you can go back to the barn after your rounds and take whatever care of your horse you want to and talk to whomever you want to, as long as you practice proper social distancing.

Rarely do I feel the need to respond to an article or comment as I am a believer in freedom of speech and feel that censorship of any kind is wrong. But I just don't want to see people decide to skip showing because they read an article that is so clearly wrong in what it is presenting. I encourage the author to follow-up with the USEF and clarify her understanding of the Covid-19 Action Plan so that what she publishes in the future can be correct, factual and accurate and give people a fair opportunity to make informed decisions in returning to competition.

NMHJA Summer Opener Rescheduled For June 4-7

Due to the USEF's announcement this past Saturday that the ban on USEF-licensed competitions will continue through May 31st, the New Mexico Hunter Jumper Association and Collman Equestrian Productions, in cooperation with Hipico Santa Fe, have decided to move the show back one week to June 4-7. CEP's Chris Collman says, "we are hopeful that this will be the last extension of the ban, that recognized shows will be able to start on June 1st and that we will be able to host this show as a full, four-day USEF-licensed competition." Of course, the USEF is not the only entity that has to approve of this. Chris continues, "the Governor of New Mexico and the local authorities, including county and city officials, must also lift certain sanctions to allow a horse show to take place. If all of these pieces fall into place properly and in a timely manner, we could see this horse show be a go. If not, then we would have to cancel it and look forward to the September show instead." The prize list is being updated and will be available online shortly. Stay tuned to the CEP website, CEP page and the NMHJA website and pages for up-to-the-minute news on this show.

NMHJA Summer Opener To Be Extended To Four Days

During this Covid-19 outbreak, exhibitors have been prevented from showing since mid-March, and many are anxious to get back into the show ring as soon as possible. CEP's Chris Collman says, "even though this has been a three day show in years past, a number of factors are playing into my decision to expand it to four days this year, including the fact that it was NMHJA's biggest show last year with nearly 100 horses, people haven't been able to show for a couple of months due to the Covid-19 lockdown and the desire of exhibitors from other states that may not open soon to show. If all goes well and goes as hoped for, we could see the biggest NMHJA show in a long time, and I want to make sure we are set-up for success, including being able to handle a large turn-out, getting done at a reasonable time every day and having enough staff to be able to accomplish all of our goals." Chris continues, "in the same light, it is part of my job to insure that the association doesn't lose money and suffer financially, so as we plan for the best, we will also not hesitate to reduce show days, rings and staffing levels to what is appropriate ... meaning, if you want this show to go and go well, help us out by entering in advance, before entry closing date, and show up!"


New Mexico Hunter Jumper Association Spring Fling Horse Show Officially Canceled

The NMHJA has decided to cancel the 2020 NMHJA Spring Fling Horse Show, originally scheduled for April 3-5 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. With the loss of USEF licensing and recognition, as well as the current state of the COVID-19 outbreak, it was felt that the best interests of the membership would be served by canceling this show and looking forward to the 2020 NMHJA Summer Opener, scheduled for May 29-31 at the beautiful HIPICO Santa Fe. Any entries and deposits that were submitted will be shredded. Please feel free to contact CEP at [email protected] if you have any questions. 03/13/2020

A Letter from the President and CEO Regarding USEF Licensed Competitions Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, all USEF owned events, selection trials, training camps, clinics, and activities will be suspended for the next 30 days.

[03/13/20]   March 13, 2020

Dear USEF Members,

Your health, safety and well-being and that of your horses is paramount to USEF. We are continuing to closely monitor communications on the COVID-19 Pandemic from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Department of State, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and the Fédération Équestre Internationale (FEI).

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020, all USEF owned events, selection trials, training camps, clinics, and activities will be suspended for the next 30 days. Additionally, USEF strongly recommends that competition organizers suspend all USEF licensed competitions across the country for the next 30 days and that equestrians do not compete for the next 30 days. For those competitions that do run, there will be no accumulation of points, scores, money won, qualifications, or rankings toward any USEF awards programs, USEF owned event, or selection to a US team during this 30-day time period. This includes USEF National Championships.

If you choose to compete, USEF recommends that you take immediate steps to limit your exposure and create social distancing. Based on information and guidance, in particular, from the CDC, the USEF provides the following recommendations to our membership. Participate in events that:

• Are venues within close proximity (driving distance) to your residence;
• Limit out of state competitors (and for currently operating winter circuits limit new out of state competitors);
• Restrict free access in stabling areas to only essential personnel (ie; riders, grooms, farriers, vets, officials);
• Provide alcohol-based hand sanitizer at in-gates, competition offices, vendors and convenient places throughout the competition grounds;
• Ensure restroom facilities are regularly cleaned;
• Operate without spectators;
• Limit social gatherings to less than 250 people as recommended by the CDC; and
• Ensure that food services are of the type that limit contamination, buffets are strongly discouraged.

We are providing these same recommendations to Competition Organizers and asking them to comply within the next few days. Some may choose not to cancel their event but, all are expected to take steps to limit exposure and create social distancing. Some may impose additional restrictions and safety measures in line with guidance from local public health authorities. Therefore, we are requiring organizers to post all relevant information to their website and provide it to the USEF Competitions Department.

We are counting on you to make responsible decisions based on the information available, the conditions in your geographic area and the recommendations from your local public health authorities. USEF will continue to assess the situation on a daily basis and will update our position as circumstances warrant.

Resources from the CDC, WHO, USOPC, and the FEI are available on the USEF website (click here). Links found on this webpage provide you with direct access to valuable information on each organization’s website which is updated regularly.

If you have any questions, please contact us using this email: [email protected] and your inquiry will be addressed by the appropriate department.
