Victoria Colvin

USHJA International Hunter Derby Champion

A champion in all three rings, Victoria “Tori” Colvin has accrued a vast number of victories in noteworthy hunter, jumper and equitation classes, beginning with her highly successful junior career as one of the winningest young riders in history. At the young age of 13, Tori won her first grand prix and has gone on to accrue a respectable list of more grand prix wins across the country, most notably in Wellington, Florida; Washington, D.C. and Lexington, Kentucky, to date. In the equitation ring, she dominated by winning almost every major final. Best known for her accolades in the hunter ring, Tori has won the $100,000 WCHR Peter Wetherill Palm Beach Hunter Spectacular five times, more than anyone else, and also championed the USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship in 2017, 2018 and 2019, the only rider to have won the event three times on three different horses.

“Horse showing can be hard on horses and having the BEMER Horse-Set available to help them relax and recover is amazing. I am thrilled to be a part of the BEMER team because I truly believe in the product. I have seen what a difference it can make for the horses in helping them be healthier and happier so they are prepared for peak performance!”

About the Sport

The modern show ring hunter must still exhibit the traits desired of a good field hunter— calm disposition, good manners, smooth gaits, steady way of going, and pleasant and efficient jumping ability— but must do so with style, presence and superior technique. Conformation, athleticism, disposition, and jumping form all combine to define a winning show ring hunter. A wide range of sections and classes is offered for hunter riders in today’s show ring, both over fences and on the flat. Spectator friendly and easy to understand, the object for the Jumper is to negotiate a series of obstacles, where emphasis is placed on height and width, and to do so without lowering the height or refusing to jump any of the obstacles. The time taken to complete the course is also a factor. The Jumping course tests a horse’s athleticism, agility and tractability while simultaneously testing a rider’s precision, accuracy and responsiveness. Perhaps most importantly, Jumping tests the partnership between horse and rider.
