Persons eligible to join the JOC
To become a member of the Jumping Owners Club, the applicant must be a owner who owned not less than 50 % of at least 1 horse competing at international level (from 2* to 5*) during the previous year. If one or several of these horses is unable to compete due to illness or injury, their owner(s) will have the right to remain a member of the JOC as long as there is evidence of the owner’s continued commitment to the sport.
When a member ceases to own 100% or a majority % in at least 1 horse which competes in international 2*-5* show jumping competitions, then that member’s membership shall terminate in the following year, unless there is demonstrable evidence that the member intents to remain engaged in the sport. It shall remain in the Committee’s discretion to extend or not his/her/its membership.
