Hunter Hack

A.
The Hunter Hack should move in the same style as a working hunter. Light contact with the pony’s

judged on style over fences, flat work, manners and way of going.

encouraged); 10‐13, 13 & Under – 18”; 14‐18, 18 & Under – 24” (measured at the center of the jump) 
in height. If the obstacles are set in a straight line, they must be set a minimum of
commended. A ground line is
equired for each obstacle.
2. Ponies considered for an award are then to be
shown at a walk, trot and canter both ways of the
ring with light contact.
B. After completing the two jumps, the competitor shall hand
gallop around a turn, halt, back, and then stand quietly.
They then should exit the ring or return to the line‐up on a
loose rein.
C. Placing of the class shall be determined by allowing a
minimum of 70% for individual fence work and a maximum
of 30% for work on the flat.

the same guidelines as the Hunter Over Fences classes.
Ponies eliminated in the over fence portion of the class
