The Show Jumping Hall of Fame and Museum at Busch Gardens in Tampa, FL was
established in 1987 and formally opened in 1989. It was organized to
promote the sport of show jumping and to immortalize the legends of the men,
women and horses who have made great contributions to the sport. The Show
Jumping Hall of Fame also conducts the Show Jumping Hall of Fame Jumper
Classic Series, held under Grand Prix rules and specifications. The Series,
which is sponsored in part by a grant from the National Horse Sports
Foundation, holds classes at 51 horse shows across the country. It is
designed to give amateur-owner and junior riders an opportunity to compete
at higher levels and serves as a proving ground for many riders who aspire
to someday represent the United States in international competition.
The National Horse Sports Foundation (NHSF) is a publicly supported
charitable and educational organization whose purposes include providing
financial and technical support for amateur equestrian programs for adults
and children including therapeutic riding and competitions for the disabled.
