Hunter/Jumper Series 2019-2020 Show Season.
Hunter vs. Jumpers. What's the difference?
Hunters is a classic form of English "hunt seat" riding based on the tradition of fox hunting. Horses may be any breed or age to show in the Hunter Division and includes both flat and over fences classes which judge the horse's movements and form. Equitation classes judge the rider's style and ability both on the flat and over fences.
Jumpers may also be any breed or age, however, horses are judged on the performance over the jumps. Jumper competitions are all about speed and "clean" rounds where the horses and riders jump a course of obstacles or fences, where the winner is determined by the shortest time and fewest faults. Show jumping not only shows the ability of the rider but also the agility and energy of the horse.
JHA hosts six Hunter/Jumper shows scheduled on the 2nd Sunday of each month during Show Season; October through April.

Riding is all about trust. You trust your horse to carry you through the course, and your horse trusts you to lead it". –Author Unknown.
