Release Date: 2015-05-28

Mumford, NY – May 28, 2015 – In just one week western New York will welcome many of the nation’s top hunter horses and riders for The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum, to be held June 6 – 7.

The Derby features two days of United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) Hunter Derby competition and offers riders $45,000 in prize money. Competition kicks off on Saturday with the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby and the $5,000 Pony Derby. On Sunday, the highly anticipated $35,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby takes center field at 1 p.m.

All proceeds from The Derby will benefit Make-A-Wish Western New York. The organization grants close to 150 wishes each year to children diagnosed with life-threatening medical conditions, and a minimum of $7,500 in event proceeds from The Derby will be given toward the granting of these wishes.   

General admission tickets are available for $20 at the door at the Genesee Country Village & Museum or online here:

The USHJA National and International Hunter Derby events will take place on the beautiful grass Great Meadow of the museum, and spectators may line the hills and bring their own chairs and blankets for the special annual event.

Interested media or spectators can learn more about what a hunter derby entails and the rich history of the sport in the Genesee Valley online here.
