    Hack or hunter?

    Just after opinions on whether my mare would be more suited as a hack, or as a hunter. I've had mixed feedback. She's an 8 year old quarter horse. I'm new to showing and so is she, so I'm after any opinions I can get! Thanks in advance :)

    We really need to see movement because it's quite a close call but I think hunter wins for me. Really nice pony hope you do well with her :)

    I might add that this is her probably at her lightest. She is a REALLY good doer! Haha
    I'll get video on her on the weekend. She has nice flashy movement but if she could be shown in both hack and hunter classes I suppose that's a good thing as I could take my pick really!

    Hello fellow Aussie :)

    HFers, in Australia, hunter classes are very different to in the USA.

    Hack vs hunter goes on bone. Your lovely mare isn't quite heavy enough through the leg for official hunter. But she's not fine enough for official hack. Thankfully in unofficial, you CAN do both.

    Judges are weird though, this horse [who has TONS of bone] placed in hack classes but wasn't even called in for a workout in hunter classes:


    This little horse is unshown for now [first show is coming up] but is definitely very hack-type:


    Your lovely mare is somewhere in between.

    Thank you everybody. I've been told that my best bet for a placing at our first show would be in the hack ring. I was lucky enough to be able to speak to one of the judges about her :)
