  • Green Hunter Incentive and Derby Finals Week at KHP

    Green Hunter Incentive competition starts Tuesday, and International Hunter Derby Finals are Friday and Saturday! Is anyone going? Who are your favorites? I live relatively close to KHP so I try to go every year. It's always lots of fun. For those who won't be there, livestream is on EQSports and there's a discount for USHJA members.
    It's 2019. Do you know where your old horse is?

      Order of go for today, they just started the 3'3" horses. The 3' horses had a delayed start after it poured rain this morning, but it looks nice now. https://www.ushja.org/application/fi...ound_30-33.pdf

        Had a blast last year, but am unfortunately not terribly close. Highly recommended trip if you’ve never done it, and I hope to return some year.

          Derby finals are a blast, I went the year Lillie Keenan won and the year Brunello won his third time and otherwise watch online. I think the most stunning course they ever built was the year Lillie Keenan won, the whole ring set up was spectacular. The most incredible to see in person was Brunello's handy as he kept jumping higher and higher in the handy. I sat right by the last fence, chills.

              I only watched online but I agree about Lillie Keenan and C Coast Z and Liza and Brunello, those were spectacular rounds that really stood out to me. You are right about he course Lillie won over, it was beautifully built and very challenging, I still remember her gallop to the last fence, so exciting!

                  If you ever have a chance to take a Keeneland race track tour, do it! Cost is only $15 and there are tours almost every day. I thoroughly enjoyed it this morning. Keeneland is a pretty long drive from KHP, so allow for traffic and road construction. The place is huge, and steeped in racing history. You get to see the sales pavilion too. There is a library on the grounds, and while not part of the tour, it’s worth checking out.

                    They also have an excellent gift shop at Keeneland. And a track kitchen for breakfast.

                      Question, the horse that won the 3/3’3 green incentive championship.... it walked into the ring, picked the canter up for a step then came back to the trot.... I always thought that was penalized?

                        It’s possible they didn’t see it, especially in a big ring like that with a lot of jumps in it blocking the view in some directions. It didn’t quite get all the way into the canter, so they may have decided not to penalize it too much, particularly in the division for the greenest horses.

                        At the USEF judge’s clinics, I have heard that issue described as a tiebreaker, not a dealbreaker, which I think is a good way to look at it. So maybe the horse would have won by a few more points if that had not happened, but it still won even with that slight error.

                        It was a lovely round, for sure.

                            Very cute horse!

                            Does anyone know who was doing the commentary? It sounded to me like Ron Danta, and he addressed the other person as Kelly…?

                              Ron Danta and Kelli Cruciotti. Very few judges would penalize a few steps of canter in the opening circle.

                                  As Lillie came down to the last fence in the handy at the gallop the crowd was cheering, clapping and whistling as she rounded the turn TO the fence to encourage her gallop to it. I feel like that is when we could really tell the derbies were creating something special for hunters, that was a level of audience engagement the hunter world didn't get.

                                    USHJA members get a discount on the EQSports.net livestream, but I am not sure of the details. Your membership number may be needed. Also on the EQSports website, see if EQSports.net/free-live is available because they often have a free link to the commentary.
                                    It's 2019. Do you know where your old horse is?

                                      Go to USHJA. The website will confirm your membership and give you a code.

                                      I am loving the announcers for the Derby Final today.

                                        That must have been so exciting to be there, I loved her willingness to "go for it" - it took a lot of guts not to take a safer, more conservative pace to the last fence. And she was so young!
