USHJA to Host Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to
Officially Open New Office Building
July 28, 2010
Lexington, KY. - The United
States Hunter Jumper Association will host a ribbon cutting
ceremony August 20 at 6 p.m. to celebrate the opening of its new
headquarters at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, KY.
Founded in 2004, the USHJA was
established to promote the hunter/jumper sport, to provide broad
based education to its members and to provide the framework for
the conduct of our sport. Since receiving approval as the
Federation Recognized Affiliate for the hunter/jumper
discipline, the USHJA has grown to more than 36,000 members, a
full-time staff of 15 and dozens of outsourced partners and
William Moroney, President of
USHJA, shared his excitement. "This is an exciting time for all
participants in our sport. When the Board of Directors decided
it was time to establish a permanent headquarters for the
organization, we moved quickly to secure a prime location at the
Kentucky Horse Park. The staff moved into the new building last
fall, but we decided to hold the official dedication in August,
when more members could share in this amazing accomplishment.
The ribbon cutting will take place in front of the building
overlooking the WEG demonstration area. In just a few short
weeks, the USHJA will be bringing the Hunter Derby to the world,
by performing several demonstrations during the World Equestrian
Games. The official dedication of the new offices coupled with
the upcoming Hunter Derby Finals and followed by the Hunter
Derby demonstrations at WEG creates an exhilarating series of
events for all equestrians."
The official dedication and
ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in conjunction with the
2010 The Chronicle of the Horse/USHJA International Hunter Derby
Final taking place August 20-21 at the Horse Park.
A draw party for the top 25
riders qualified for phase two of the Hunter Derby Finals will
be held immediately following the ribbon cutting ceremony inside
the USHJA headquarters. In addition, there will be a Calcutta to
benefit the USHJA Foundation and its Horseman's Assistance Fund.
An open house to showcase the
new headquarters will be held August 21 from noon to 3 p.m.
