    Maura- 4-H classes are vastly different from county to county not to mention state to state. Soundness checks aren't common except with a knowledgeable judge or at the district/state level. At states, an unsound horse is typically dismissed from the class.

    I'm wishing I could find my score sheets from way back when... I know one of them from states notes that my horse shows same natural balance and movement in hand as under saddle. This was a working hunter class. Not that that clears up the question. Lol

    I am sure you're right. Our local 4-H tends to be a rule unto itself as well; I think the organization is very flexible and sort of adapts to local skills and customs.

    But I do love that a working hunter class had comments about how the horse worked in hand.

    Is it something like there's a fitting and showmanship componenet to everything you do in 4-H?
