The mission of the Michigan Hunter-Jumper Association (MHJA) is to enhance and stimulate the sport of riding and showing Hunters and Jumpers in Michigan. The MHJA works to provide uniform standards for all Association shows which establish safe, consistent, and fair competition. The MHJA not only encourages each exhibitor to perform to the best of their ability, it also encourages exhibitors and spectators to demonstrate good sportsmanship.

The MHJA show season begins on October 1 and extends through September 30. Individual championships are awarded in all MHJA divisions at each horse show. In addition, members and recorded horses may earn points throughout the MHJA season towards annual championship awards in each MHJA division.

The MHJA provides three levels of competition. Regular Member shows, also known as the "B-Circuit" shows, are the highest level of competition the MHJA offers. Some exhibitors use the Regular Member shows to prepare for competition in nationally recognized USEF shows. "C-Circuit" shows provide a good starting point for novice exhibitors. This competition is designed to encourage exhibitors to develop the skill and confidence they will need when they move on to compete at the more advanced levels. Pony Circuit shows provide an environment where ponies compete according to their height and experience. Classes are especially designed for the younger rider.
