Dear Exhibitors,

As of May 1, we are very hopeful that we will have our HMI June Classic, June 10th – 14th. Entries close May 19, 2020.
 
Entries sent in will not be pre-charged for any fees and checks will not be deposited until the start of the show.
 
Entries for the HMI June Classic, USEF Junior Hunter National Championship-West and the Gladstone Cup Equitation Classic are available on showgroundslive/headlands, Equestrian Connect, Sonoma Horse Park and Headlands Management websites.
 


New qualifying criteria for the USEF Junior Hunter National Championship-West
 
A maximum of 200 horses will be accepted to compete, however USEF reserves the right to adjust this number to ensure fair and consistent point qualification standards and a safe competition environment. The number of entries accepted per section will be determined based  on the current qualified numbers and past years’ entries.
 
Entries for the USEF Junior Hunter National Championships will be accepted based on the following:
