2020 Event derby

Instead of running a complete USEA recognized horse trials; we hope to run a one-day derby on Saturday, June 27th. The event will feature two phases: a traditional dressage phase followed by a shortened, combined cross country and stadium jumping phase. Please see the entry form below for details and feel free to message us on Facebook with any questions! 

UPDATES!!! (as seen on Facebook)


To clarify: For those of you planning on schooling the XC course on Friday, you can, but you'll have to yield to our course preppers, water truck, etc. If possible, please school before Friday afternoon. Also, please don't school the show jumps that we'll have set for the derby course.


We’ve got a nice turnout for the derby and dressage schooling show next weekend! If you still want to enter, speak fast because we only have room for a few more and we’re setting tentative ride times tomorrow.


Since we're not running a recognized event this year, we don't have rules for closing the cross country course. If you're a Warfield Park member, you're free to school at any time. HOWEVER, please be conscious of the footing before the derby on June 27, and probably refrain from schooling in the afternoon on Friday, June 26 so we can get the course ready for Saturday. Thank you and as always, Enjoy the Park!


Friendly reminder that you do not have to braid or wear show coats for the derby! If you’d like to you’re welcome to, but we just ask for professional and clean schooling/clinic attire!


STABLING and SCHOOLING info for the Derby. If you’re a Park member (this requires a separate form and fee), you can stable and school at any time, subject to regular Park rules. If you come early (Friday), you’ll need to watch out for our volunteers prepping the course, and please be considerate of the footing since we want it to be at its best for Saturday’s Derby. If you register for extra jumping rounds in addition to your Derby entry, they can be either below, same or above the level of your Derby entry.
DRESSAGE – UPDATE! Our awesome volunteer has offered to set up the large arena. So bring on those fancy dancy USEF horses and riders! ALSO – GRASSHOPPER Derby riders – you can choose USDF Intro Test A (which is only walk-trot) if you’d like that instead of USEF Beginner Notice Test A. Just be clear about what test you want to ride so we can have the right paperwork for our judge.
DRESSAGE! Arrowhead Eventing Derby competitors are lucky to have Bobby Stevenson (USEF licensed “S” eventing judge) judge their dressage rounds. But the fun won’t stop there – Marina Davis will be judging schooling rounds in the afternoon. Marina is a USDF certified instructor and trainer for Training level Second level. Although we only put the USEF dressage tests (BN-P TEST A, available on the USEA website here: https://useventing.com/events-competitions/resources/dressage-tests) on the entry form, Marina is open to judging anything you want to ride! Just write it on your entry form and we’ll make it happen, or message us for more information. In particular, we’d love to see some Western Dressage! Those tests can be found here: https://westerndressageassociation.org/wdaa-tests/?fbclid=IwAR04Tsbvc1nxOdtEmRHeoQAO79QUZaM5UDDZB42DbY3qMxV-5NLWU1kAWWo
