The BRITISH SHOW JUMPING ASSOCIATON, JERSEY has its roots in the 1950s. Once a branch of the National BSJA, the association is now run independently but maintains close links with this governing body of the sport of show jumping in the UK.

The BSJA Jersey Show Ground is situated in the centre of Jersey within easy reach of all parts of the Island.The jumping arena is irrigated throughout the season and always maintained in tip-top condition, rivalling the best English venues.

Competitive events are held from March to mid September catering for a membership with a wide range of age and ability, riding horses and ponies from novice to experienced Grade A.Members are able to gain experience over a large variety of courses, thanks to both resident and visiting international course designers.In addition to show jumping, horse and pony showing competitions are also held and it is here, in the leading rein classes, that our youngest members are found.

Each year, increasing numbers of local members travel with their horses to compete with some success on the mainland and some have qualified locally and jumped in England at regional final level.

Visiting teams of riders bring their horses here to compete at our Liberation Day Horse Show and enjoy Jersey hospitality. Traditionally, Guernsey field a senior and junior team for some annual inter-island rivalry and English visitors have included riders from the King's Troop and show jumpers hailing from the Midlands and Yorkshire.

The sport of show jumping is enjoyed by around 250 members at present. BSJA Jersey's aim is to encourage and increase this participation and to reach a high standard of competition.
