- Educating the equestrian public and competition spectators on the standards of horse and rider grading and judging
- Providing information on the horses and riders who have achieved excellence in show hunter competition
- Fostering the appreciation of this sport through the establishment and maintenance of a National Show Hunter Hall of Fame with the appropriate related ceremonies and awards
To be eligible for induction, a person must have participated in the Show Hunter Industry for a minimum of 15 years and distinguished themselves by the nature of their contributions or achievements.
