Mythical and Jersey Boy Top the List to Return for Sunday’s $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby Handy Round

Antioch, IL - September 7, 2013 – A field of 39 horses galloped back-in-time over old fashioned coops, stone fences, logs and brush jumps in the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby presented by ABBA Vet Supply. The derby is part of a special stand alone event at the 2013 Chicago Hunter Derby at Rush and Caroline Weeden’s Annali Farm in Antioch, IL. Hunting to the top of the class was Alliy Moyer of Carmel, IN, and her nine year old Hanoverian, Carlson.

The rustic course was designed by George H. Morris of Wellington, FL and Bobby Murphy of Lexington, KY.  The course was open and flowing, up and down hills and through the woods, resembling a fox hunting track.

“I really liked how open the course was,” said Moyer. “You could just gallop around.”

This was Moyer’s first derby win. Moyer, 19, spent this year showing in the Amateur Owner Hunter Divisions and now is trying her hand at the derbies.

“My horse was really confident,” said Moyer.  “My trainer (Tammy Provost) usually rides him in the bigger derbies so he’s easy to ride.”

Moyer came back in third place and just decided to be as handy as she could.

“My horse is really handy, he’s little and compact so he’s easy to turn,” added Moyer, “so it worked out for the best!”

Moyer goes off to college now as a freshman at The University of Indianapolis to study Biology.

After the first round, it was Taylor Adams and In Print, owned by David Glefke, who took the lead.  Following Adams was Tammy Provost and Sigfried owned by Susanne Stroh for the second spot and Moyer in third.

In the handy, Adams scored an 81 and an 82 with four high options for a total of 171 but Moyer edged her out with tighter turns earning an 86 and an 85 plus four high option points for a total of 179.  Provost had an unfortunate stop at the first jump, knocking her into eleventh place.

Thanks to all the great sponsors, Moyer won an Animo jacket from Barrington Saddlery and a Le Fash gift certificate courtesy of Le Fash along with an ABBA custom jacket and gift certificate. Moyer also was the High Scoring Amateur in the class, winning a pair of Pikeur breeches sponsored by Frantisi, and also was wearing a Le Fash shirt, which made her a winner for the “Wear it and Win it Challenge” class. Le Fash will be donating $500 to the charities in Moyer’s name because she was wearing a Le Fash shirt.

Clare Sargent was the High Scoring Junior rider and also won a pair of Pikeur breeches.  Doug Boyd was the High Scoring Gentleman, winning a custom belt from Good Threads.

Barrington Saddlery also awarded Animo breeches to Taylor Adams and Samantha Segedy for second and third place.  Riders placing second through sixth also received gift certificates for Le Fash shirts.

The 2013 Chicago Hunter Derby is presented by Chicago Equestrians for a Cause. The Mission of the group is to showcase high-level equestrian events with the express purpose of raising funds for selected charitable institutions in the Chicago area. The event features the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby presented by ABBA Vet Supply and the $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, generously sponsored by Canadian Pacific (CP). The proceeds from this unique stand alone event benefit three charities; Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, The United States Hunter Jumper Association Foundation, and the University of Chicago Cancer Research Foundation.

The excitement continues Sunday, September 8th, with the final round of the $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby. Twenty horse and rider combinations from today’s Classic Round competition will hunt around the course again in the Handy Round for the coveted first prize.  The riders returning tomorrow are:
