Lexington KY – May 14, 2013 – The Kentucky Spring Horse Shows began on Wednesday, May 8, 2013,  and one of the highlight events was the kick-off of the 2013 Hallway Feeds USHJA National Hunter Derby Series. The Hallway Feeds Series consists of seven national hunter derby events to be held during the 2013 show series at the Kentucky Horse Park. Following the final event, cash prizes totaling $15,000 will be awarded to the series’ leading riders

The Kentucky Spring Horse Show featured the lead off event on Saturday evening with the $5,000 Hallway Feeds USHJA National Hunter Derby. The top riders from across the nation gathered to compete over a challenging course and vie for the winning title and valuable points towards the $15,000 Leading Rider Awards. At the end of the night it was Shawn Casady and Stars Go Blue who led the victory gallop, giving Casady the lead in the standings. Jennifer Hannan who placed second with As Always, and Havens Schatt, who picked up the third place award with Kindle, follows Casady closely in the rankings. The Kentucky Spring Classic, May 15-19, 2013, will host the second event in the series on Saturday, May 18, in the Stonelea Arena.

The USHJA National Hunter Derby program will be in its fourth year in 2013 and is growing in prestige and popularity.
