International Show Jumping rider Derek Braun is the founder and president of Split Rock Jumping Tour. Braun has spent virtually his entire life in the sport of Show Jumping, starting at the age of seven and shortly after becoming one of the nation’s premier junior jumper riders by garnering gold medals in the USET Talent Search Equitation Finals, The National Jumper Championships and the Prix De States at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show. As a professional rider, he has earned numerous grand prix victories and placings at our nation’s most prestigious horse shows, international competitions, and has represented the United States Equestrian Team. His global experience as an international rider combined with experience as a horse show producer has given him a unique insight to transform the American Show Jumping experience.
