Promoting the Breeding and Development of Young Hunters in Texas and throughout the United States.
Created in 2012, the Texas Super Series Green Hunter Stakes (formerly Texas Pre-Green Super Stake Series) served as a pilot for the USHJA Pre-Green Incentive Program. With increasing size and payouts annually, the program has paid over $650,000 to date to developing Hunters, their owners, and their riders.
Introduced in 2015, the Texas Hunter Breeding Super Series was created as a lead-in to the Texas Super Series Green Hunter Program. The Super Series Group will continue to offer their 3 Year-Old Freestyle Performance Championship in the fall of 2018, but Texas Hunter Breeding enrollment and series awards have been electively discontinued for the benefit of the programs.
Also established in 2015, the Texas Hunter Sire Program has been called "the icing on the cake" for the Super Series Group programs. Designed to further encourage participation and support of Green Hunters and Three Year-Old Freestyle Performance Participants, the program offers incentives and opportunities to the very roots of the Hunter industry.
2016 brought new bonuses and incentives to the Super Series Group's already exciting Texas Green Hunter Final Championship, including a $2,500 plus 20% add back Rider Ranking Tier 2 purse and a $500 Non Pro Bonus award. Partners Colleen McQuay, Patrick Rodes, Peter Pletcher and Pauline Cook would like to thank all that have contributed to make these programs possible!
