Show Hunter

What is Show Hunter?

“It is the technical art of jumping, where, in addition to leaving the rails up, the horse must demonstrate a superior natural jumping style along with a level of training that makes him a balanced ride.

Hunter classes were originally designed to test the qualities necessary in a field hunter: excellent manners, efficient and comfortable gaits, and a good, safe jumping style. They represent the more artistic side of the industry and thus attract more “artsy” horsepeople.
