South Florida Hunter Jumper Association
5928 Homeland Road
Lake Worth, FL 33467
The South Florida Hunter Jumper Association was originally named FHJA and founded in 1959. FHJA encompassed all of the state of Florida. During the late 60’s or early 70’s the geographical divide occurred. Today there is SFHJA, NFHJA, CFHJA and FSHJA. There are other associations and clubs but these are the largest that stem from the original FHJA. The division occurred because we are a large state and it was not feasible to include everyone from all parts of the state to be active in the original organization. As independent groups, we can better serve our members and the horses.
