    I'm against hunting, and it's a hardly a sport IMO. If a sport, both sides should know they are part of the game.
    She doesn't mean Hunter as in 'Hunting'. She means it as the discipline Hunter. If you don't understand here is some info about Hunter/Jumper:

    Off topic: I don't think Hunting is a sport, more like a hobby. I don't have anything wrong with it however as people hunt for meat most of the time. Are you against cow slaughtering too?

    Expect rich daddies girls who don't know that money doesn't grow on trees and they have there little bay push button TBs and set up practically a living room outside their trailer. That is why I switched to eventing! Too much brattyness! (I am not sayting that anyone on this site is like that, and don't think that. It is the people in my area!)

    I do eventing and hunters... there aren't many eventing competitions in oklahoma, but we have a hunter/jumper show circuit that my barn started... at least its practice xD The only eventing barn is the one where I ride at.. there's another one down the road a ways, but it's private.

    Good luck with her, she does look like she'd make a cute little hunter

    Thanks! We did some more jumping today - and with a larger cross rail, so she actually JUMPED this time instead of just half jump/half trotting like in the video I have in this post I'm going to try to get video of her jumping again tomorrow over a larger jump too! SO much fun to finally be jumping!

    She's super cute. You guys should do well at the lower level Hunter shows. And if I remember correctly you also wanted some info about the classes. Hunter classes come in different divisions. Each division is usually made up of 3 jumping rounds and 1 flat. You collect points depending on your placing and then on the last day the points are counted and Champion and Reserve are awarded. (The shows are usually between 3 and 5 days long). A great starting division is the Short Stirrup or Short Stirrup Pony. The jumps are 2'3 and the distances are not set quite as long. The division is designed for 'beginner' riders who maybe haven't shown as much yet. Then there are 'Lows'. These are judged classes but they aren't part of the division. You generally use them as warm-up classes to get your horse into the ring and work out any possible 'issues' your horse or you might have. (ex. Deal with the spooky jump so that your division round is good and you get more points). I love the hunters for beginner riders and green horses because they teach both the horse and rider about pace, rhythm, and track which is super important if you want to move on the the equitation and jumper ring. Good Luck at the shows. =D and post news when you go to your first one!

    Here's a great video of a 2nd Year Green Working Hunter Class. 3'9
