I've never entered in show hack, but I've always been under the impression that it's a jumping class, kind of like hunter hack. I signed up for it at a show this past weekend, and about half way through the day decided to be smart and as how high the jumps would be, incase it was over what my and my horse normally jump. I walked up and asked, and the lady (who had already been extremely rude to me that day) rudely told me that there weren't any jumps, and when I asked for a description she started talking to a person behind me, and I walked away. I asked my trainer and she also told me it was a jumping class, but I should go ask for a description since it wasn't. I went back a while later, and after being told that they didn't have a written description (which wasn't what I asked for in the first place) she finally told me it's a flat class where they ask for walk, extended walk, trot, extended trot, etc. I scratched it because my horse doesn't have a very good extended trot, and because I still didn't know what to expect and didn't feel like asking anymore from the lady. Has anybody ever entered in show hack? Can you give me a better explanation of what it is, and what to expect? What I would be judged on? Anything like that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
