The Show Team

Cross Winds Farm has an outstanding show team.  We take pride in our team spirit and the support we offer each other. That's a big reason for our success, as well as the talent of our training staff! Another reason is our team's hands-on, all-inclusive horse care.  All team members personally tack, groom and prepare themselves and their horses for the show arena.  We believe strongly that complete horsemanship leads to well rounded riders, a healthy competitive attitude, and total pride in hard-won accomplishments.  Please see our Photo Album page to see more of our team in action. 

Chicago Equestrian announced it will sponsor a 2'6" Hunter Derby Series on the NIHJA 2011 circuit.  A total of over $2,000 will be offered in derby prize money  with a minimum of $500 in prize money per class.  Some horse shows may  choose to offer additional prize money based on entries received.  An  overall series award will also be sponsored by Chicago Equestrian for the horse  winning the most prize money in the series. Exhibitors will be able to vote  for the best derby in the series and the hosting horse show will also receive an  award.

A total of four derbies will be held in the series. The  first derby will
be held at the Cross Winds Farm Horse Show June 10-12.  The  second will also take place at Cross Winds Farm for Birch Hill Farm at their August 26-28 Horse Show.  The third will be  held at the Palatine Horse Show September 9-11.  The fourth derby will be  announced shortly. 

The Chicago Equestrian Hunter Derby Series will be a class of two  rounds, a classic round and a handy round.  Fences will be hunt field type jumps set at 2'6" with three 3' options. Detailed specifications will be in  the horse show prize list.  Talk to your trainer for more information.
