In a hunter pony you want something very laid back. They are ussually made for children, so you want something that is somewhat push button and that will take a child through a nice little course with ease. It should be brave over jumps and not the refusing type. It should be steady and mellow through the course. It should know how to preform lead changes over jumps and on the flat. It should be able to correctly stride out a line. It needs to have a nice jumping position, being nice and round with tucked feet. It should be a pretty mover for the hack classes and be relaxed and streched out with its nose poked out. As said before it is very important that the horse fits the rider's size.
