The Show Jumping Hall of Fame and Museum has been located at the Kentucky Horse Park since 2010.
Purpose of the Show Jumping Hall of Fame
The Show Jumping Hall of Fame 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. A primary focus of the Hall of Fame, which was officially established in 1987 and formally opened in Tampa, FL in 1989, has been to encourage broader interest and participation in show jumping, as well as to educate those inside and outside the sport about show jumping’s history by sharing its legends, lore and landmark achievements.
Show Jumping Hall of Fame Enshrinement
Enshrinement in the Show Jumping Hall of Fame is a great honor bestowed upon those select few whose contributions to the sport have set them apart. Plaques honoring those who have been honored with induction into the Hall of Fame can be seen at the Horse Park’s Rolex Stadium and mementos and artifacts from the sport’s history are on display as part of the Show Jumping Hall of Fame collection at the United States Hunter Jumper Association’s Wheeler Museum.
