Clearly Claims An Unusual Derby Win At Horse Shows By The Bay III

Williamsburg, Mich.—July 22

For a few minutes, it wasn’t quite clear whether Clearly had won the $20,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby or not.

Kelley Farmer accomplished a remarkable feat at Horse Shows By The Bay III. Somehow, she managed to ride three horses to exactly the same final overall score in the derby. When the announcer broadcast the scores of her last to jump, Red Sky, the total added up to 387—the same score she’d earned on Clearly and Praise as well.
