2023 Cascade Finals Named USHJA Outreach Festival Event

We’ve always known that our Cascade Finals (Sep. 7-10) horse show was special, but this year we are proud to share that our season finale has been named as the United States Hunter Jumper Association’s Zone 9 Outreach Festival event for 2023!

An Outreach Festival is the culmination of a series of USHJA Outreach events held across multiple venues throughout the year. Outreach Festivals bring the excitement and thrill of a championship-level competition closer to home at an affordable price.

We have long offered USHJA Outreach competition at our Pacific Crest Open (June 29 – July 2) show, and bringing this competition to our newly expanded, 4-day Cascade Finals event is exciting for us. As an Outreach Festival, the Cascade Finals will be even more appealing to riders of all ages and levels.

USHJA Outreach Competition

USHJA Outreach competition has grown in popularity in recent years among riders who are newer to the Hunter Jumper sport. Outreach riders can compete in USHJA-branded events and earn points toward year-end awards, with a chance to participate in USHJA National Championships. Any rider may compete in Outreach Hunter, Jumper and Equitation classes, but riders wishing to earn points must have a free USHJA Outreach membership (or any other USHJA membership; US Equestrian membership not required). Horses must be registered to be tracked, but otherwise do not need to be registered or microchipped to participate in Outreach classes.

Learn more about ratings, memberships and affiliations

2023 Zone 9 USHJA Outreach Series

In addition to our Pacific Crest Open and Cascade Finals shows, the 2023 USHJA Outreach Series for Zone 9 (Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming) includes:

WSHJA – Monroe, WA
Burkwood Farm, Lynden, WA
LWSC – Kirkland, WA
High Timber – Spokane, WA
Quiet Rein/Heirloom Sherwood & Battle Ground, WA
Bedrock shows – Wilsonville, OR
Rolling Rock, Sherwood, OR
MDT – Aurora, OR
HDHJA – Bend, OR
Treasure Valley – Nampa, ID
Big Sky – Bozeman, MT

To compete in an Outreach Festival, riders must participate in at least one other Outreach Series competition. Competing in an Outreach Festival qualifies you for regional recognition, awards, ribbons and prizes.

Cascade Circuit Cup Finals

Don’t forget that the Cascade Finals is your last opportunity to earn points toward our 2023 Cascade Circuit Cup awards. Winners will receive valuable prizes and recognition. Plus, all points earned in September will count 1.5x times toward your season total!

We look forward to bringing you another great showing experience this September, filled with fun and challenging classes (now including USHJA Outreach classes!), abundant free hospitality, and of course, that welcoming Cascade Horse Shows vibe.
