2020 NJQHA Membership Dues and Horse Nomination Fees were rolled over to 2021!
Due to these unprecedented times, the NJQHA Board decided that if you paid your 2020 membership dues and/or your 2020 Horse Nomination fees, they would be rolled over to 2021, eliminating the need to submit payment for 2021. You could also change the Horse nominated at no charge as well. You however still needed to fill out and submit a 2021 Membership Form>> and a 2021 Horse Nomination Form>>
The 2021 year also brought updates to the 2021 NJQHA Bylaws>> and 2021 High Score Year End Award>> Rules. Effective in 2021, all adult Amateurs must obtain one class sponsor for a NJQHA sponsored show.
