$2000 “Hunt and Go” Derby

The “Hunt and Go” format was only introduced several years ago as a way to shorten the original derby format while still offering a classic and a handy round. Instead of all riders competing through the classic and then returning at a later time for a handy, the course is designed as half classic and half handy. Riders are therefore able to highlight their horse’s strengths in both formats. We will run this derby at 2’6”, 2’9”, 3’, and 3’3” – L option will designate fences to be jumped by 2’6″ and 2’9″ horses and H option will designate the fences to be jumped by 3′ and 3’3″ horses.  The adjustable fences will be adjusted accordingly.  Each entrant will receive a numerical score for the classic round and a separate numerical score for the handy round. All horses will complete the handy round unless they have a major fault such as a refusal, pole down, or a fall. The total of the two rounds will be the final score.

Entry Fee: $100

Prize money: $500, $350, $300, $250, $180, $160, $140, $120

“Equitation is the art or practice of horse riding or horsemanship. More specifically, equitation may refer to a rider’s position while mounted, and encompasses a rider’s ability to ride correctly and with effective aids. In horse show competition, the rider, rather than the horse is evaluated.”
