Hunter horse in the show ring (the poetic vision)

 Hunter horse in the show ring:

When a horse and rider competes in the hunter division it should look smooth and easy.

 

Ø       The horse should move in a manners that is light and flowing without being hurried.

Ø       The horse should jump in a manner that is athletic, but controlled.

Ø       The horses knees should come up well below the horses chin, and  should not dangle below the shoulder of the horse

Ø       All the jumps on the course should be from a consistent take off point (Not short or long, or faint)

 

Ø       On the flat you will want your horse to be in a comfortable relaxed frame ( Not a tight dressage style frame)

Ø       You want your horse to move forward smoothly, and cover the ground well in a relaxed manner

 

More to come (for those who are intested.
