Gorgeous Braids and Perfect Knees: Best of the Hunter Derbies, Presented by Kentucky Performance Products

Hunter derbies are something that I’ve always wanted to try but never have had the opportunity to do so.Β  I have a ton of respect for those who compete in hunter derbies — not only do you have to navigate a course with some pretty huge jumps (with high options), but the course is handy and bendy like a jumper round.Β  AND on top of everything else, you need to do it with style — you with your turnout and your horse with his or her jump and way of going.

Even if I never do a hunter derby (I do the jumpers myself), I would still love to get a shadbelly just because they look awesome…Β Scroll on for some gorgeous hunter derby pairs, thanks to Kentucky Performance Products!

The knees on this horse are just…WOW.

I love a pretty dappled grey!

What it’s all about! Smiles and pats for your horse.

Go hunter derby-ing! Go Jumping!


Exercise-induced muscle damage that results in sore, stiff muscles and poor performance is a common problem in athletic horses. Vitamin E plays an important role in preserving optimal muscle function by interrupting the production of harmful free radicals that can damage critical tissues. When vitamin E levels in muscle tissue are inadequate, the risk of exercise-induced muscle damage is increased.Β Elevate Maintenance PowderΒ supplies the natural vitamin E your horse needs to neutralize damaging free radicals and support peak performance. Keep your horse at the top of his game with Elevate natural vitamin E.

The horse that matters to you matters to us.
