Hunter Jumper Shows

GMHA hunter/jumper entrant

Hunter/Jumper shows are exciting events that test the horse and rider's ability to navigate a set course at different heights that can range from 12" to over 4'. Hunter classes are judged on the horse's jumping ability and style, manners, and way of going.

Winners of Jumper classes are chosen based on who jumped the course with the least amount of faults and in the quickest time.
