The Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby is a one-of-a-kind equestrian competition that raises charitable funds for deserving nonprofit organizations serving the northern Nevada community. This is the only stand-alone event in the country that also offers some of the largest purses — over $40,000 in prize money — for just two days of competition! This exclusive setting, paired with the prize money, brings some of the best riders and horses in the country to this event year after year.
Congratulations to our 2017 winners!
