Derby Regional Standings
With the addition of an optional $200 enrollment fee, the 2013-14 regional awards includes a monetary component. Horses may compete in an International Hunter Derby without being enrolled, but horses must be enrolled to be eligible for inclusion on the regional and national money won tracking lists, and to participate in the 2014 Derby Championship. A minimum of 60% of all enrollment fees collected in each region will be paid out to the top six horses on each regional Horse Money Won list at the conclusion of the 2013-14 series in November 2014.
