Horses that Compete
The HUNTER division is judged on both performance and conformation. When showing over fences, hunters should maintain an even hunting pace, a speed that would keep them up with the hounds and other horses in a foxhunt. Hunters should have a smooth, even style over the jumps. The jumps, or fences, used in the hunter classes simulate the types of obstacles that would be encountered in the hunting field, such as posts, rails, brush and stone walls. A horse is said to have jumped “clean” if no faults are scored against him. A fault is an error, such as knocking a jump down.
Open JUMPER classes are among the most popular events with spectators because they provide thrilling entertainment and the judging is simple. Jumpers are judged strictly on performance. The horse with the least number of faults over a given set of jumps is the winner. In jumper classes, the style used to get over the jumps and around the course is not judged. Jumpers are scored under two tables of the Equestrian USA, Table I and Table II.
