Well show hunter ponies are meant to be heavier boned than open ponies, well mannered, capable of doing an easily controlled hand gallop, correct conformation and basically are meant to have the ability to go out "hunting".

Anyone feel free to add anything else.

And to top it all off, they should still have the quality of a show horse.

Most welshies, and the heavier Australian ponies and Riding ponies are what are going around over here in Oz. With the welsh and welsh x usually taking the honours

A good size is important. The pony must fit the rider well. The pony must also be verryyy well behaved and appear easy to ride.

Yes.
Also, they have to not really look at the jumps at all. Just sail over them easily (most hunter-jumps have flowers).

Most recognized hunter shows don't allowing schooling over the jumps so your class is your only chance.

No, I didn't mean it like that. I meant they shouldn't be looking down at the jump, or be very curious/nervous over it.
