The Manitoba Hunter Jumper Association is made up of a volunteer Board of Directors who dedicate innumerous hours of their personal  time to the development of riders, both young & old, in the sport of show jumping.  We have various committees that run our events throughout the year.  Additionally we have committees that  search out sponsorship support- both in kind and financial to continue to run a non-profit organization that can promote the show jumping sport.

It is this tireless dedication of our board that has given our membership the opportunity to achieve tremendous success, not only having a ton of fun competing provincially at our shows and others held in the province, but also have had much of our membership over the past 75 years compete nationally and internationally.  

We have about 10 meetings throughout the year and other committee meetings are held separately as necessary.  Each person on the board is elected in for up to two years and can run for re-election at that time. 

If you are interested in being a board member- please reach out to any of our current board.
