Upper Marlboro, Maryland – At the 2017 Capital Challenge Horse Show, presented by the World Equestrian Center on September 29 – October 8, the $45,000 Green Hunter 3’ and 3’3” divisions will offer competitors an opportunity to receive national points for the first time.
Formerly named the Future Hunters, the Green Hunters have been a premier division at the Capital Challenge Horse Show since 2001. The division was established to provide an avenue for many of the best pre-green horses in the nation to compete against their peers. While the division has always highlighted great talent and the future stars of the hunter ring, it has not previously offered an opportunity for national points.
Now, as the Future Hunter division aligns with the Green Hunter division, set forth by the United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) and the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), competitors at Capital Challenge will still have numerous sections in which to compete, but now with the added benefit of accruing points toward the USHJA and USEF Horse of the Year awards.
