EQUITANA Auckland is proud to be showcasing the incredibly popular sport of Show Hunter in 2019. Show Hunter is affiliated to Jumping New Zealand and is the technical art of jumping, where, in addition to leaving the rails up, the horse must demonstrate a superior natural jumping style along with an established level of training.
Jumping a Show Hunter course demands the skill and discipline to ride a predetermined number of strides between related fences and maintain an even rhythm throughout the round. It develops the relationship between horse and rider and is a breeding ground for our potential stars of the future.
The Show Hunter classes will feature Horse of the Year Qualifiers including Open Horse 1m, Open Horse 1m10, and Handy Hunter 1m.
You can catch all the action from the Show Hunter Classes at EQUITANA on our opening day on Thursday 21st November from 8.30am in our outdoor arena.
