The 2017 Wayne Eventing Derby will be held on April 21-23
NEW COMPETITION ADDED TO THIS YEAR’S WAYNE EVENTING DERBY, APRIL 20-23Most event organizers get bored very easily and as a result, they constantly search for new things to feature in their event(s) to keep themselves amused. Because the organizer of the Wayne Eventing Derby is is typical of the breed with the attention span of a goldfish, she has added a new competitive opportunity to the tried and true format the riders have come to know. New this year - The Move Up Challenge with a cash prize for the winner sponsored by Ron Illian and Margaret MacHarg.
Here’s how it goes:
On Sunday, all regular Derby entries jump their final round. If they then would like to have a go at the next level up, they can notify the gate steward and for a nominal $15 fee jump the course for the next highest level. It can also be entered in advance.
The round will be judged on performance and also on style and confidence. The winner will be notified on May 1 and a check for $300 will be
sent. It will also be announced on the Derby facebook page.
