The North American League (NAL) runs season long series in six hunter
jumper divisions Childrens Hunter, Childrens
Jumper, Adult Hunter, Adult Jumper, Pony Jumper and Open Jumper
Speed. Each series culminates with a championship final at the Pennsylvania
National Horse Show in Harrisburg, PA in October. Riders need not
be members of the NAL to compete in any qualifying classes, but
only current members earn points toward year-end finals. For more
