Hunter Classes

As I understand it, there are lightweight, middleweight, and heavyweight hunter classes. What breeds/crosses would fall into these categories? I understand the general description per Wikipedia (see below), but I'm asking which horses would match those descriptions.

Wikipedia answer:
Weight sections
Show hunter horses are divided into three weight sections - lightweight, middleweight and heavyweight. The lightweight hunter should be able to carry up to 12 st 7 lb (79 kg), stand around 16 to 16.2 hands (64 to 66 inches, 163 to 168 cm) and have about 81⁄2 inches of bone under the knee. The middleweight hunter stands around 16.3 hands (67 inches, 170 cm), can carry between 12 st 7 lb (79 kg) and 14 st (89 kg) and has 83⁄4 to 9 inches of bone. The heavyweight stands around 17 hands (68 inches, 173 cm), has 9 inches of bone under the knee and is capable of carrying over 14 st (89 kg).
