    While on the showgrounds, everyone will be expected to adhere to COVID-19 protocols including proper distancing when possible and the wearing of masks will be required in any enclosed or shared space. Click the links below to download information regarding SCHJA COVID-19 Requirements and the SCHJA COVID Waiver which must be completed and on file in the horse show office. We are so excited to see everyone in Camden, and are committed to providing a safe environment for all who attend!


    In lieu of a banquet, the SCHJA Board is sponsoring a "grab & go" dinner before the Derby on Saturday, and exhibitors will be permitted to picnic on the hill (adhering to spacing requirements). WE WILL NOT BE MAILING AWARDS AND RIBBONS THIS YEAR, SO IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND, YOU NEED TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS WITH SOMEONE TO PICK UP YOUR AWARDS/RIBBONS AT THE SHOW! They will be available in the pavilion through the end of the show Sunday.

Hello everyone,

We hope this e-mail finds you well and appreciate everything you have all been doing to get our local horse shows back up and running! As we all work to figure out how to manage this "new normal," the SCHJA has put together a small committee to work on our COVID protocol for our local horse shows. Our task force has come up with the attached guidelines. Please see the following COVID Requirements and Waiver attached that will go into effect as of July 10 for all local SCHJA sanctioned horse shows.

We understand that it is every manager's right to run their horse shows how they see fit, but in order to retain SCHJA sanctioning, we ask that these guidelines be implemented and followed. The steward's report will be updated in the next few days to reflect whether or not an effort to follow protocol is put in place by management and followed by exhibitors. This weekend's horse shows will fall under a grace period as we understand that it may take several days to put everything in place, but horse shows beginning July 10 should follow SCHJA guidelines to retain their sanctioning until circumstances within our world have changed and we are able to go back to safely showing without restrictions.

Please let us know if you have any questions or if we can be of any help to you all with communicating, implementing or enforcing these policies. We truly hope this can be a group effort to keep everyone safely horse showing!

Thank you, Emma Fogler on behalf of the SCHJA Board
