Established in 1998, SHF Enterprises is committed to sustainable success in show jumping.

We focus on breeding and developing young horses and offer select opportunities to riders and owners seeking top athletic prospects.

A culmination of many years of patience and practice for SHF.

For 2018, our 20th year, our mares in Europe are producing high quality offspring. As we prepare for their sale and the Stallion Approvals this fall, we are transitioning our young horse development program to include horses owned by clients and adding a third pillar to our Young Jumper support.

Education & Outreach

SHF launched its Texas Training Opportunity program to promote education, access and awareness of riding fundamentals, horsemanship, and opportunities within and around the sport. What began as a show jumping and horse care only program in 2016, was expanded in 2017 to include a dressage session.

We work to provide free or low cost education for riders under 21 years of age across a range of experience levels from novice to young riders for the benefit of young equestrians and members of Zone 7/Region 9.

College Level Externship
We are offering 1 day Externships based on the Rice University Owl Edge experience, of which we are a registered host.

High School Career Day
We are offering an informative session for students and parents to expand their knowledge on the countless ways people can work in and around the horse industry. With a focus on STEM, women’s owned businesses, and agribusiness, participants will visit with seasoned professionals to hear about their experiences and their progression from high school through higher education to their roles today. A wide range of speakers will be available from veterinarians to PhD’s working in agriscience and pharmaceuticals to equine lawyers to bloodstock agents to racing or genetic statisticians, to farm and facility managers, among others. 

SHF Perspectives

“I take a lot of pride in these horses and in our program. I want the best for them always—with the ultimate goal of their making a contribution to show jumping at its highest level.”

“We try to be smart in our managerial practices and develop these horses with time and care.  They will be ready when we hand over the reins to top riders and to owners in partnership or when they move on to new owner’s stables.”

“Supporting young horse programs and participating with emerging athletes programs enables us to make a contribution to the sustainably of the sport at the ground level.”
