The 2nd annual Pines Hunter Derby will be held on September 8, 2013. Please see below for information on last year's derby.
We are excited to announce our first Hunter Derby on September 9, 2012!
Open to all exhibitors with no restrictions to horse/pony or rider. The first round will be a hunter classic round and the second round will be a derby course. The class will be held on our grass huntcourse and include at least three of the following but is not limited to: a tire jump, firewood jump, high/low option jump, bank jump, hay bale jump, or trot fence. We plan to turn our hunt course into an "outside course" for the class allowing an option to exit the ring, jump a fence and return to the ring. The class will be run at 3 height options - 2', 2'6", and 3', and pinned together. Formal attire is requested although not required. This class counts as bonus points for the trainer's award. Entry fee $50
