VI’s Hunter Derby a great success


VI’s first ever Hunter Derby on Friday, Oct. 11 attracted many student competitors and workers at all levels. The Derby was created to give students hands-on experience at a home event in-between intercollegiate showing. A classic hunter course and a Handy hunter course followed the 2013 USHJA National Hunter Derby specifications as closely as possible within the size of VI’s indoor ring.

“This was a fun in-house horse show that gave the students showing experience,” said Lisa Moosmueller-Terry, equestrian center director.  “They learned how to do a top-notch course design and decorating and how a hunter derby runs.”
