Release Date: 2015-05-14

Mumford, NY – May 14, 2015 – The Plaid Horse Magazine is ‘America’s Premiere Horse Show Magazine,’ and The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum is quickly becoming one of America’s premiere hunter derby events. Together the two make a perfect fit, and The Derby is pleased to announce The Plaid Horse as an official media partner for 2015.

On June 6 – 7, 2015, The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum returns to Western New York for its second year of top hunter derby competition. The Derby will feature a $35,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, a $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby and an all-new $5,000 Pony Hunter Derby.

“I had the opportunity to attend The Derby last year, and it was the best showcase of the USHJA International Hunter Derby I have seen,” said Piper Klemm, Ph.D., owner and editor of The Plaid Horse. “I knew I wanted The Plaid Horse to be involved with the event and be a part of the success of stand-alone spectator driven hunter events. I am thrilled with the inclusion of the pony hunter derby classic this year- with the ponies showing over natural obstacles on the grass, it has the potential to enhance the pony hunter divisions like the derbies have enhanced the hunter divisions.”

A select number of media partnership opportunities still remain for this year’s event. Media outlets interested in finding out more about the benefits of a partnership with The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum, contact Emily at or by calling (717)-368-8102.
