The OHJA Hunter Development Series
The OHJA is committed to developing young hunters in Ontario and we are pleased to bring you a new pilot program for 2018. The intention is to provide classes specifically for Young Hunters. These classes will give Ontario breeders and owners an opportunity to network at Gold Competitions in order to develop and market their young horses and breeding programs.
These classes have been offered to the following competitions. Please check individual schedules for availability:
