Watch the PRO Derby Cross Live Online for Free

Bruce’s ride from last year

Our friends at the USEF Network presented by our friends at Smartpak will be broadcasting the derby cross live from Wellington, Florida starting at 7:00 pm ET.  The derby cross is part fundraiser, part promotion for PRO, part promotion for eventing, and part Friday night entertainment for Wellington show jumpers.  Proceeds from the event benefit Operation Homefront and the filming is being done by CatchRide.

Last year’s champion, Team FarmVet/Cavalor,is returning with the exact same team–Buck, Bruce, Will Faudree, Aaron Vale, and Kris Kampsen.  It’s hard to bet against them, but I love Team SmartPak’s competitiveness and Team Omega Alpha is loaded with Canadian talent.

Having just made the mistake of picking against two EN guest bloggers, let me say good luck to all of the competitors!  Go eventing.

UPDATE: Team Guardian took home first place tonight and we’ll have a report from the winning team tomorrow.  If you had trouble with the live feed you definitely weren’t the only one.  Although I have no idea why it wasn’t working I would just say that even running a live blog can be fraught with technical issues so I can’t imagine how hard it must be to do live video.  If you’re going out tonight stay safe and have fun and go eventing.
