AQHA hunters and USEF hunters are judged by two completely different rule books. AQHA is heavily influenced by the breed stardard, which is as it should be, since it's a breed show. They're looking for a horse that conforms to breed type and demonstrates the versatility and athleticism of the breed. USEF hunters are about the *discipline* standard, not the breed standard. I'm not saying that one's better or worse than the other, just that they're different and judged on different criteria. A horse that's successful in one is not necessarily likely to be successful in the other.

yep.. She was amazing. She was kinda crazy though. she won't even tie. Lance Graves had to pull her in a stock trailer to shows and leave her in it until warming her up and running her. She will break lead ropes, halters, STALLS..but hey, you sat on her and kicked and she won..
