The USHJA International Hunter Derby Program is open to all horses that are registered with USHJA and recorded with USEF. A horse may compete in an International Hunter Derby without being enrolled in the International Hunter Derby Program, but a horse must be enrolled in the program to be eligible for inclusion on the regional and national money won tracking lists, and to participate in the Derby Championship. Money won in International Hunter Derbies prior to enrollment in the program is not retroactive and does not count toward tracking lists, regional awards or Derby Championship qualifying.
Enrolled horses must maintain a current USEF recording at all times to retain Derby money won and to continue to accumulate money toward the Derby tracking lists.
Enrollment is valid through November 30th.
- Opening Date of Enrollment until February 1 of each series - $350
- February 2 until June 1 of each series- $550
- June 2 until November 30 of each series - $750
Awards through sixth place are presented at the end of each series in all four regions.
A region must be selected for each horse during the enrollment process. Any region may be selected and that region may not be changed for the remainder of the series.
