LIVINGSTON COUNTY – Experience the true origins of some of the oldest hunting skills at the historic GCV&M Victorian Hunter Derby.
According to a press release from GCV&M, a derby gives a horse and rider challenges similar to what they may find in the field such as hedges, coops, banks, ditches, gates and logs layered over natural terrain.
Courses are built to encourage daring, bravery and athleticism from horse and rider, qualities that would be necessary in a hunt field.
The Hunter Derby at the Genesee Country Village & Museum is an event held in the tradition of a true vintage derby. The competition features both National and International level derbies.
The Great Meadow, surrounding the museum’s iconic white and green bandstand, will come alive with the most talented of riders as they compete for the purse.
The derby runs on Saturday June 6 and Sunday June 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
