I have to say that Generaly the spanish breeds do not Fit in well in the riding horse class. The riding horse class is not for any ridden horse (as is the mistake of many showing newbies) it is a perticular type and it tends to be TB or the lighter warmbloods.
Dressage saddle in a riding horse class will entirely depend on the level of show. If it is affiliaed and the judge rides then you will have a problem as most showing judges hate dressage saddles.
Idealy a hunter should be in a double or a pelham, however at unaffiliated shows you will get away with a snaffle.
When you say hunter saddle what do you mean? A workinghunter saddle (as in straight cut with only a very tiny knee roll)?
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
