discord: discord.gg/dX8M6aDThe history of todays "Show Hunters" has its roots in English foxhunting. Hunters is a type of english riding ridden in the "hunt seat" style. Horses are judged based on qualities once found in traditional foxhunting horses. This includes "manners, fluid movement, and correct jumping style". Horses are most often of Warmblood types, including Thoroughbreds. Pony Hunters are also popular with junior riders. Today horses are shown over-fences and on the flat, with essences of the disciplines history present. In contrast to Jumpers/Show-Jumping, Hunters is non-timed and often courses are based with natural components; brush, logs, natural wood jumps, and so forth.
The Hunt-Club aims to promote and educate people about real life hunters. We offer mini shows and effort shows based on real life class lists & divisions. We also act as a registry for hunter horses, a classifieds directory, and so much more. Interested in joining? Just hit the join button, anyone is welcome!
