Four Weeks of Hunter Derbies and $52,000 in Prize Money in Western New York

Release Date: 2014-04-16

Buffalo, NY - April 16, 2014 - This spring, there will be no better spot for multiple weeks of hunter derby competition on the east coast than Western New York. Between May 15 and June 22, 2014, the Buffalo Showtime Horse Shows and The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum will provide competitors with a total of four USHJA National Hunter Derbies and one, highly-anticipated $35,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby. Together the four hunter derbies offer a lucrative $52,000 in total prize money.

The Buffalo Showtime Horse Shows will offer three $4,000 USHJA National Derbies and The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum will offer one $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby. With a total of $17,000 up for grabs, the four USHJA National Hunter Derbies provide competitors with the perfect opportunity to accumulate prize money and climb the USHJA Money Won Standings, all while staying in one region. 

The Buffalo Showtime I Horse Show will run May 15 - 18, 2014 at the Fairgrounds Showplex in Hamburg, NY, with the $4,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby held on Saturday, May 17, 2014 and sponsored by Skibbereen Farm. 

From there, three back-to-back weeks of hunter derbies kick off with The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby. The Derby at the GCV&M will become one of only three stand-alone hunter derbies in the country, allowing for emphasis on providing spectators and exhibitors with the highest quality hunter derby experience.

The expansive grassy Great Meadow at the Genesee Country Village & Museum will serve as the backdrop and stage for the National Hunter Derby on Saturday, June 7, 2014.

Less than a week later, riders can return to the show ring at the Buffalo Showtime II Horse Show, running June 12 - 15, 2014 with the National Hunter Derby, sponsored by Stellar Equestrian, on Saturday, June 14, 2014. The Buffalo Showtime Horse Shows continue the following week with the Buffalo Showtime III Horse Show to be held June 19 - 22, 2014 with a hunter derby, sponsored by Up the Creek Farm, on Saturday, June 21, 2014.

For riders and owners from USHJA Zone 2, the derbies could have a big, positive impact on their year-end standings. USHJA Money Won Standings by Zone are based on money won solely at competitions held in the owner or rider’s home zone, so with all four derbies in Zone 2, riders and owners have numerous opportunities to climb the ladder.
