The Blue Ridge Hunter Jumper Association (BRHJA) hosted the 2016 Hunter Derby to benefit St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation on Friday, June 17, at the Foothills Equestrian Nature Center (FENCE). The Hunter Derby courses are designed to more closely resemble the hunt field, with fewer ground lines; taller, narrower fences; ditches; gates; banks; walls; hedges; and more. The approaches to jumps vary greatly, from short to long to serpentine, and are completely negotiable. Riders are rewarded for choosing more difficult routes, which can even include optional jumps. The dinner served ringside featured a delicious barbecue picnic (catered by Foothills Mountain BBQ) with side dishes and ice cream (from Scoops and More!)sundaes for dessert. This year’s event was fun for the entire family with a caricature artist and kids “temporary” horse tattoos. Your support of the Hunter Derby benefited the Discretionary Fund at St. Luke’s Hospital Foundation. This fund enables the Foundation to exercise discretionary spending when evaluating and purchasing small equipment items, facilitating required equipment repairs, or accommodating other unplanned expenses that develop during the course of the hospital’s fiscal year..
