Hunter Derby Information

Prophet and I have had a long road to get to where we are now.  Over nine years ago, I saw that cute face pictured on the side of this page sticking out of a stall at the track and had the grooms load him into my trailer.  Nearly a decade later, I have a pretty lovely horse who is my entire world, and I've decided to branch out and enjoy this relationship we've formed.  Over a few too many glasses of wine, a good friend and I decided that we should dive head first into the world of Hunter Derbies by entering the USHJA International Hunter Derby at the Duke Benefit show in Raleigh.  For me this venture is very exciting and a step out of my comfort zone.  For years I've been out of Hunterland, prancing around fields and "Running Fast at Logs".  Now we are putting together the pieces to 'Go Slow at Poles".  

So many of you have ridden the rollercoaster ride of P's and I relationship with me, and I want you to continue on with me as we put the ride in reverse and go on a completely different direction (don't worry, the eventing will still be there too!).  There are several ways to become involved -- hopefully this page with pull together all the information. 

Derby Details Description
The Derby series has several levels.  P and I are truly grabbing the bull by the horns, and jumping right in at the top. Here is a link to what it is that we are actually doing... http://www.ushja.org/programs/ihd/ihd_default.aspx

The Derby we will be competing in will be held November 8th at 6pm at the Hunt Horse Complex Coliseum.
