Colvin Keeps A Cool Head To Lead Classic Round Of USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship

Lexington, Ky.—Aug. 15           

Tori Colvin never gets nervous to compete, not even going into the U.S. Hunter Jumper Association International Hunter Derby Championships, held Aug. 15-16 in Lexington, Ky. And even though Inclusive hasn't seen a derby course since last year, and the derbies aren't Colvin's main priority, the pair radiated confidence to earn the top spot in the Classic Round.

Finding Your Derby Championship Favorite

If you’re a serious hunter fan, chances are you already have a favorite or two for the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship on Aug. 15-16. It’s easy to name the top contenders, but it’s always fun to have another reason to have a sentimental favorite. After all, you already know why you should cheer for frequent winners Brunello and Jersey Boy.

I’m lucky enough to follow the derby circuit and many of its participants pretty closely for the Chronicle, and can attest that there are lots of interesting pairs that will be at the Kentucky Horse Park.

Banderas Banks A Big Win At Menlo

Menlo Park, Calif.—Aug. 8

Last year Nick Haness left the Menlo Charity Horse Show with a red ribbon from the biggest hunter class of the competition, and an itch to come back and do even better. So he came back this year and made it happen.

He tacked up Ecole Lathrop’s Banderas to jump to the top of the $10,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby and edge out last year’s winners, Hope Glynn and Kings Peak. Junior Halie Robinson galloped up the standings on Captiva to take third.
