Primera And Catherine Rinehart Reunite And Win Gulf Coast Hunter Derby

Catherine Rinehart admitted a fair amount of luck went into her win in the 2010 $10,000 The Chronicle Of The Horse/USHJA Hunter Derby, held March 5 during the Gulf Coast Magnolia Classic IV in Gulfport, Miss. It was lucky she got the ride on Primera at the beginning of the week, lucky she had an earlier ride in the hunter derby to figure out her plan for the course, and even a little lucky she rode Primera four years ago when he was just a first year green horse so she knew what to expect with him.

Soft Spoken Multi-Tasks His Way To The Win In The Thunderbird Hunter Derby

Junior rider Jocelyn Evans’ horse can do it all and win.

Jocelyn Evans’ well-rounded gelding took time out from a busy career as a junior hunter, equitation horse and junior jumper, to top the class in Langley, B.C.

“He’s my only one, and he does it all,” Evans said.

Curtain Call Takes A Bow

The owner of Curtain Call, the 11th-placed finisher in the $100,000 ASG Software Solutions/USHJA International Hunter Derby, may be  new to the hunter scene, but she’s hardly a novice equestrian.

One of the top women ropers competing in the American Quarter Horse Association, Shannon Reid also made a name for herself riding and owning top cow horses at the National Reined Cow Horse Association.
