Welcome to the Central Virginia Show Jumping Association (CVSJA) website.  For twenty-four years, we have maintained our committment to promoting the sport of show jumping in Central Virginia.  As an associate member of the Virginia Horse Shows Association we are proud to produce an annual show jumping series that helps further the popularity of show jumping in Virginia.  The CVSJA has consistently been voted as one of VHSA's top 10 shows!!

Since 2002, our show venue has been the ever-popular Deep Run Show Grounds.  With the covered grand stand seating and excellent ring footing, Deep Run is popular with spectators and exhibitors alike.

During our TWENTY-FIVE year history we have collected a loyal following that includes participants from as far as Roanoke, VA.  We also have folks from Lexington, Charlottesville, VA Beach, and of course the greater Richmond area.  Each season individuals new to the excitement of show jumping join our ranks.  Folks from all levels--novice to amateur to the professionals--can come and really get a feel for show jumping in a friendly, supportive setting. It's a great show for those wanting to try their skills in the jumpers and for those experienced folks wanting to test their skills for the A shows.

We look forward to having you join us!!

Current News --updated on September 16, 2017
  • Quick update to remind all that tomorrow is reverse order in Ring 1. Also, it's the Field Day of the Past so please be aware that there may be more traffic than usual around the Ashland Rd & Broad Street intersection as well as the Manakin exit (#173).
  • NEW--this year we are trying out a new process for nominating the awards that are chosen for the show season. Click HERE for the new procedures and HERE to see the nomination form, etc.
  • Points are up and class results are on the division results page from the last show.
  • There were some typos in the prize list so please take note:
    2 corrections to 2017 prize list:
    Prize list description of classes in the main body of the prize list (right above an ad for John P. Black Inc.) is missing one of the pre-schooling classes: It should read:
    13. PreSchooling 2'9" Table II, Sec 2(b)
    14. PreSchooling 2'9" Table IV Section 1 Optimum Time...
    Also the May show date is incorrect in the prize list:
    May 14 show is listed as May 15, which is a MondayMay 14 is the correct date. 
    We apologize for any confusion!!
  • Click HERE to see the prize list or go to our Forms page for a link there too! It's a large file so please give it plenty of time to load. Please pay special attention to division/ring changes. Thanks!
  • Don't forget if you're hoping for a great photograph of you and your pony...our very own Sarah Black is there taking photos. You can find her work on her website (http://sarahblackphotography.photoreflect.com/). She takes great photos, but don't let that tempt you into taking them without proper permissions, etc! If you have any questions about her work, look around for her at the horse show. She's usually between the two rings with a large camera.
  • CVSJA is continuing its support of the Goochland Family Services. We are asking all exhibitors to contribute to this worthy cause. Click HERE to access their website.
  • Warm-up rounds to match what's in the prize list: Each horse will be allowed one warm up round per ring per show.
  • As many of you are aware the CVSJA continues to grow by leaps and bounds over the past few years. If you're interested in learning to one of the show staff positions we'd love to have you volunteer to learn the ropes and we can always use an extra hand or have someone trained up on a staff position to fill in as needed. See Nanci if you're interested in learning more.
