We are about to embark on a landmark journey for Show Jumping in South Africa.
From the 1st of August 2013, the SAEA will cease to exist and all of the SAEA disciplines will stand on their own as independent Discipline Associations. The Jumping National Technical Committee will become South Africa Show Jumping (SASJ) and will be a constitutional member of the South African Equestrian Federation (SAEF), as will all of the SAEA disciplines. There are 6 other equestrian codes who are existing members of the SAEF.
This change will have a significant impact on all equestrian athletes in South Africa and it is imperative that show jumping enthusiasts are aware of the change and the new structure.
We have drawn up a constitution and business plan in best interest of our discipline going forward. These documents are attached herewith for your information and feedback. We have created a fee structure that is realistic in order for us to deliver on our objectives, as well as to be able to offer maximum support to the provincial discipline committees.
A concise document detailing the new structure is available on the SAEA website. All members have to join a club rather than a Provincial Body, and register with the SAEF. You will also join the Discipline Association in which you wish to compete. If you join at the 1st August 2013 all of your points and horse’s performance history will be carried forward into the new structure.

These are registered online at no cost to compete in Sanctioned Recreational (Training) Shows. These SASJ Sanctioned Recreational shows schedules can be downloaded from the SASJ website. If it is not on our website it is NOT a Sanctioned event!
From the 1st of August 2013, the provincial bodies and their respective Equestrian Development Schemes (EDS) ceased to exist.
SASJ is an independent Discipline Association, and will now run their own Equestrian Development Scheme.
