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 on the west coast that also offers some of the largest purses — over $40,000 in prize money — for just two competitions! 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.
The eighth annual Franktown Meadows Hunter Derby is growing in new and exciting ways. The local chapter of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) will be a second charitable benefactor, with the Food Bank of Northern Nevada returning for the fifth consecutive year.
VIP and General Admission Tickets for this year’s “Weekend of Equestrian Excellence,” can be purchased online or at the gate. The gate opens at 10 am each day.
