After the first round of the 2021 Platinum Performance/USHJA Green Hunter Incentive Championship, Victoria Colvin is in a race with herself.
Colvin both leads the competition and sits second aboard Doctor’s Orders and Mastermind, respectively, with Hunt Tosh third aboard Twain.
The Green Hunter Incentive Program is open to horses eligible to compete in the Green Hunters 3’0″, 3’3″, 3’6″, and 3’9″ heights. All horses compete in the first two rounds, in which they receive numerical scores. The top 30 horses, including those tied for 30th, with the highest combined scores from the first two rounds, advance to the third round, where they start with a clean slate.
Watch the rounds from the top three:
“I love the Incentive Championships for the Pre-Green horses because it has a Derby feel,” Colvin said. “I think that both of the horses that I rode today have the potential to be great Derby horses and this is the perfect introduction to that for them. It is also great to have money opportunities and a big ring feel.”
