The derby will be visible from ALL tables on our lawn. Spectators are not permitted to enter the vineyard area where the actual event is taking place (with the exception of family and friends of riders, which may watch from a designated area inside the vineyard).

Due to the nature of this event, it is completely weather dependent and is subject to cancellation or reschedule. In the event of inclement weather and cancellation, all reservation holders will be notified of any changes.

What is a Hunter Derby? A two-round horse jumping competition. Both rounds typically include natural fences reminiscent of the hunt field, such as stone walls, logs, brush jumps, white board fences, post-and-rail jumps, gates or coops.
