Hunt Teams class @ Devon Horse show
I was just reading the COTH article about the results of the hunt teams class and the marriage proposal to one of the riders on the winning team (very lovely and congrats on your win and the proposal btw, the horses looked lovely in the photo).
However, I couldn't help but make note of the statement that the young lady had never been in a hunt field in her life and had no hunt affiliation, and apparently never plans to hunt.
Does anyone else feel that in order to compete in a hunt teams class, the riders should be hunt members and the horses field hunters? If they aren't, then it isn't very well hunt teams now is it? It's just 3 nice horses and pretty riders jumping around a course. All very lovely just the same, but not hunt teams.
