Oh we'll I wasn't sure that's just what I heard, besides my horse is way to green to already think about hunters or jumpers, we are still learning the basics, I was just looking ahead into the future.

Well..If the misinformation is from me, I'm blaming Meredith Manor for it, lol. Apologies if it is from me, I don't normally comment on things I'm not well informed in.

Hunters:
Based on your equitation and your horses movement, and your turn-out, not timed either, some classes judge on confirmation as well, and the quality of your round (example: when a course is posted, it will tell you how many strides in each combination) . Excellent manners, comfortable gaits are a big for Hunters.

Jumpers:
You are timed. You can get defaults if you have rails down, refusals, falls. Not based on your turn-out, for example: Higher level Hunters you need to wear tall boots, Jumpers you can wear half chaps.
Whomever has the fasted times after their faults goes into a "Jump Off", basically it's a harder course then what was in the class; sharper turns, roll-backs, etc. Your horse is aloud to wear jumping boots, martingale, draw reins, etc, where as Hunters you are not aloud

This is my attire in the Hunters:




And the Jumpers(I still wear tall boots, I like matching my colors for fun, but I am "concervant" you would say and like to look classy lol, a lot of jumpers have bright colors) :

@ Fullford15- I thank you very much. I think I prefer hunters though over jumpers, I like that classy look. Is there any specific way to tell which discipline your horse prefers, like anything I should look for? Thanx!!
@iseul it's totally fine. Thanx for your help!

No problem! Like I have said in a different thread, start your horse in the Hunters first, get them used to the foundation of it, get a good balance and rhythm, once you master the Hunters, move onto the Jumpers. If your horse has more of a "mythogical" movement, then hunters. If your horse is speedy but knows it's footing well then jumpers...
The horse in your avatar picture looks like it would be a beautiful Hunter... Where I am, you don't see many paints in the Hunter ring.

Omg thank you soo much! Yeah with his forward ness I would think jumpers, but I have been told by many that he would be a great hunter. But right now with his training, he needs a lot more training before I decide what he is best for. And personally, now this will get a lot of controversy so I'm not looking to argue with anyone but IMO hunters is harder than jumpers. I mean for me to put it in a nutshell, jumpers is jumping and hunters is jumping PRETTY. So idk, just my opinion. That's why I like hunters better. Also, is it true that hunters generally have a more arched back because I wasn't sure on that. Thanx for your help!
