This competition is recognized by:

 

Every class offered herein, which is covered by the rules and specifications of the current MIHJA Rule Book, will be conducted and judged in accordance therewith.

STABLING - Stabling is one of two locations:  The South Barn, which has permanent 10' x 12' box stalls with full doors, all but two of which have rubber stall mats for your horse's comfort.  The other is the Packer Barn, which has permanent 10' x 10' box stalls with 4' doors.  The Packer Barn is closer to the show and schooling rings, and is an open-air barn for better circulation during summer shows.  Upon arriving, trailers should pull into the first entrance to unload at the Packer Barn, and the second entrance to unload at the South Barn.  When you're finished unloading, trailer parking is available from the first driveway, by the Packer barn.  Please call in advance for stalls (309) 799-3203 - barn, (309) 737-3195 - Jan, or (309) 738-7767 - Rachel, or e-mail MIHJAmail@hotmail.com so we can have your stalls ready for you.  There will be no charge for cancelled stall reservations.  Stalls are $50 regardless of how long you're there (Thursday-Sunday).  There is a $15 per day charge for showing out of your trailer.

NON-SHOWING HORSE - A horse that is brought to the show grounds, but does not compete in any classes must pay a $25 non-showing horse fee in addition to the stall fee (if applicable) for their use of the jumps, footing, and facility.

ENTRY / CROSS ENTRY - Exhibitors are responsible for a knowledge of the Rules and Regulations governing the horse show and for their own errors and omissions.  If you are unfamiliar with MIHJA rules, please check with Rachel Rock Robinson or our steward Sandee Cochran regarding the specific rules governing the show and/or specific divisions prior to competing.

ADDS / SCRATCHES - Adds and scratches can be done at any time.  No transaction fee will be assessed.  Full refunds are given for scratched classes.

JUMP ORDER - Check in at the gate for a self-posted order.  Anyone not checked in will be posted at the end of the order.  Notify the gate if there are any tack changes or conflicts.

CHAMPION AND RESERVE CHAMPION - To be awarded in hunter divisions only, to two of the four horses scoring the most points over fences, based on their total points including the under saddle class.

OFFICE FEE - A $10 office fee will be charged for every rider.

SCHOOLING - Both outdoor show arenas will be available before and after the show for unlimited schooling.  The indoor arena (60' x 240', sand) will be available at all times for unlimited schooling.  Ring 1 (180' x 300', sand) will be available for schooling during the morning classes, while the show is going on in Ring 2.  Ring 2 (100' x 200', sand) will be available for schooling during the afternoon classes, while the show is going on in Ring 1.  The sand does not get slippery when wet, regardless of how much rain we've had.

FEED AND BEDDING - Additional shavings are available by the bag (prices vary).  Hay is available for $4.50/bale.

PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR - In accordance with USEF rules, all exhibitors are required to wear properly fitting protective headgear passing or surpassing current applicable ASTM / SEI standards with harness secured while riding anywhere on competition grounds.

TACK SHOP / CONCESSION STAND - Huntermark Tack Service is located just beyond the club room in the main barn.  If you'd like to make a purchase before or after the show, just let Rachel or Jan know.  The Huntermark Café will be selling concessions during the show both days.  The menu includes Taco in a Bag, sandwiches, pizza, and more.

SPECIAL REQUESTS - Please let us know if there's anything that can make your show experience better or easier.  We are very flexible as far as moving classes around or making any exception we can to accommodate you, as long as we stay within the MIHJA rules.

HUNTERMARK SUMMER EQUITATION SERIES -  The points earned in every equitation class offered in Ring 1 and Ring 2 (classes 101-121) will be tracked throughout the summer series.  The rider with the most equitation points at the end of the season will have their name engraved on a traveling trophy and will be awarded a $200 scholarship for next year's Winter Series. Ribbons will be awarded to the top ten high point riders.  This award was created as a memorial to a former student who died from cancer.  This trophy is entitled the Stephanie VanDeWoestyne Memorial High Point Equitation Rider Award.  The points will be awarded as follows: 1st-10,  2nd-6,  3rd-4,  4th-2,  5th-1,  6th-˝  regardless of the number of exhibitors.

HUNTERMARK SUMMER JUMPER SERIES - The points earned in each of the 5 jumper classes (classes 224-251) will be tracked throughout the summer series (MIHJA and HFEC).  The rider with the most jumper points at the end of the season will have their name engraved on a traveling trophy and will be awarded a keepsake award.  Ribbons will be awarded to the top ten high point jumpers.  This award was created as a memorial to former student's father who died of cancer.  This trophy is entitled the Karl Killam Memorial High Point Jumper Rider Award.  The points will be awarded as follows: 1st-10,  2nd-6,  3rd-4,  4th-2,  5th-1,  6th-˝  regardless of the number of exhibitors.
