Shawna Dietrich, Founder of Dietrich Equine Insurance, shared her excitement about the new role as Presenting Sponsor, “The International Hunter Derby is something I am personally passionate about. The Derby has breathed fresh air into the hunters by creating a class with a modern perspective that honors the roots of the sport. It has been a thrill to watch the “Derby” take off and know that I am able to personally contribute to the continued growth of this amazing class.”

USHJA CEO, Shelby French built on Shawna’s sentiments, “USHJA has been fortunate to attract sponsors who share a dedication to excellence. Dietrich Equine Insurance has been a perfect fit for the Derby and Shawna’s commitment to the program has been an added benefit.
