Keri Kampsen and Shiloh Roseboom Take Top Honors in $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby
Hunter competition at the Kentucky Summer Classic came to a head early Saturday morning in the Stonelea Ring during the $5,000 USHJA National Hunter Derby. An expansive fleet of 70 junior, amateur, and professional athletes took to the derby ring aboard their prospective mounts in hopes of claiming some of the last precious World Championship Hunter Rider (WCHR) points before the Finals later this fall. Due to the large field of competitors, the class was broken up into Professional and Non-Professional sections. Rising to the occasion in the pro-section was Keri Kampsen with Arezzo, while junior rider Shiloh Roseboom topped the Non-Pro section aboard Likely Story, posting the highest scores of the day out of all 70 competitors.
