Hunters - Horses may be any age or breed to show in the Hunter Division. Horses are not judged on time but on conformation, appearance, form and expertise over the fences, and their ability to maneuver the course at an even pace. As a horse's ability and experience increases, so does the difficulty of the course.
Jumpers - Jumpers may also be of any breed and are judged on their performance over jumps and the speed in which the jumping course is completed. The horse with the fastest, cleanest round (fewest rails knocked down, or faults) is the winner.
USEF dictates we send payouts within 30 days of the conclusion of the show.
