Make The Derby Your Post-Devon Destination!

Mumford, NY – April 22, 2014 – Hunter riders officially qualified for the 2014 Devon Horse Show should plan to stick around the Northeast for a few extra days this year. Just days after the Devon Horse Show’s $25,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby, The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum offers riders another lucrative USHJA International Hunter Derby – this time on a scenic grass field and with $35,000 in prize money up for grabs.

The $35,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby will be held on Sunday, June 8, 2014 with a $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby being held in conjunction on Saturday, June 7, 2014. Together the two derbies will make up the inaugural Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum, just one of three stand-alone hunter derby events in the country.

“The stand-alone events are kind of the only true hunter derbies remaining, and there aren’t very many of them,” said Bobby Murphy, course designer for The Derby at Genesee Country Village & Museum and the Chicago Hunter Derby.

The stand-alone format allows for 100 percent of the focus to be centered on creating the ultimate enjoyable experience for the hunter derby horses and riders, as well as spectators. Both the National and International Hunter Derbies will be held on the Great Meadow of the Genesee Country Village & Museum in Mumford, NY, an area extraordinarily rich in equestrian history.

The Genesee Country Village & Museum is reflective of that history, as one of the largest living history museums in the country. It features costumed historic interpreters in restored historic buildings set in a beautifully preserved rural landscape that paints the perfect backdrop for the USHJA National and International Derbies.

Proceeds from The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum will benefit The Rochester Women’s Giving Circle.

Stalls and entries for both classes are already beginning to fill, and all entries are due by mail by May 30, 2014.  To view the prize list and entry forms for The Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum click here.
