Hunter Hack

Like Hunter Under Saddle, Hunter Hack is all about looking graceful and smooth as you move around a course. The difference is that in Hunter Hack a rider must also jump fences. It takes a lot of skill and practice to make sure your horse is moving in a smooth way that the judges like.

In Hunter Hack, every step your horse takes has to be exactly the same. Think of it this way: Just like a runner can’t begin to skip, hop and jump during a race, a Hunter Hack horse always has to move exactly the same way throughout the event. And who would want to make a horse HOP anyway?!
