Entries for the HT are now Closed. Derby entries still accepted.
Check Entry Status for the list of entries received as of Sep 10. Please verify that the info shown is correct. In particular, please advise if your stabling choice is not correct. Tent stabling has been rented, so your choice is now confirmed. Also please note that we have combined the OT and TH divisions due to low numbers.

The Jumping Derby on Friday will be run as a USEA Test. The stadium courses will be different from the event courses for the HT, and will build from Starter up through Prel during the day. You may enter consecutive levels if you choose.
The judging will be based on the Hunter model, from 1 to a perfect score of 100. Points will be awarded for penalties (40%), style (40%) and 'time closest to optimum' (20%). So you see, the consistent round with a cheap rail will beat the wild and crazy clean round every time! There will be ribbons for each group, and prizes for the top score at each level.
Riders may compete in the Jumping Derby even if not USEA members; a nonmember fee will be owed in this case. Also, riders in the Derby do not pay the USEA Starter and Drug&Meds fees.
