Welcome to West Tennessee Hunter Jumper Association
West Tennessee Hunter Jumper Association (WTHJA) has been dedicated to promoting excellence in horsemanship, riding, training and competition in the hunter jumper industry throughout West Tennessee and the surrounding areas since 1980. WTHJA produces 'A' and 'C' rated USEF / USHJA rated horse shows that attract participants from across the South, Central and Midwestern United States.
Last week, our horse community lost one of our longtime exhibitors and a great friend. Linda Brzoza was diagnosed with cancer a few months ago and lost her battle quickly. She will always be remembered for her competitive spirit and her talent with horses, as well as an impressive winning record!
To help honor her memory, WTHJA has started a fund to create a very special year-end award. This award will go to the Amateur Owner that accumulates the highest number of points in the AO 3'6" and/or the AO 3'3" Hunter sections. Multiple horses owned and ridden by the same rider will count toward their total. There will be a perpetual trophy engraved yearly with the winning rider's name and an embroidered cooler and a representative trophy for taking home. This perpetual trophy will stay on display in the horse show office in Germantown.
If you would like to contribute to this fund, please make your checks payable to WTHJA and write "Brzoza" on the memo line. Your donations are tax-deductible and you will receive a tax receipt. Checks can be left in the horse show office this week or mailed to:
