Event Description

2023 Winter Spectacular Show Series| Hunter Derby Reception presented by Wheels Up

On Friday, February 10 and Thursday, March 2 a special reception will be held on the terrace of The Equestrian Hotel for two premier equestrian events.

The country’s best hunter riders will take over the WEC Grand Arena on Friday, February 10 to compete for the blue ribbon in the $20,000 MARS Equestrian 3’6”-3’9” Hunter Derby. Watch elegant hunters compete in a two-round format over courses that mimic the hunt field. The first round is a classic round, where the horse is judged on style, quality and movement, and the top 12 highest scored combinations return to be judged on their horse’s rideability through a more technical track.

Thursday, March 2 will showcase the $50,000 FEI CSI3* Welcome Prix. The night promises to bring elite international competition with the world’s best show jumping competitors racing head-to-head for the lion’s share of the prize money.

Pricing:  $82.39
