    Smile going back to the Hunter/Jumper Shows (I have a ??) PLEASE.

    Well im going back to the Huner/Jumper & Dressage thing.
    I'll fiinsh out the season doing HUS shows but as of next yr I'll do Hunter/Jumper. Do you think Beautiful would make it as a Hunter?? The shows would be small and not o/f.

    If there are no o/f classes, then how would that be different than HUS?

    Depends entirely on the shows and how she carries herself. Sometimes our paints can do it, sometimes they can't. It all depends on her movement and what the judge wants to see. What about continuing to do the open shows? Do you have open english shows in your area?

    I am just guessing, but possibly because she would be at H/J shows rather than open shows that happen to have have a few hunter classes, therefore more competitive. I am not a hunter so I cannot answer your question, Tiffany, but you could post it in H/J forum and see what they think. Good luck with the new trainer!

    I would wait a bit more until you are jumping better. I did watch the video and you might think about dropping the crossrail down a smidge and working on your position more. We do tiny cross-rails at our barn while doing position work. That way if the horse needs to make a correction it isn't so hard.

    I do ride at a good sized barn that has a lot of hunter/jumper riders that do much bigger shows than I.

    Here's a good video of a beginner walk-trot crossrails round. The horse is going evenly and quietly. The rider looks comfortable. It looks easy for both, but there is lots of training involved. You will probably want your new trainer to spend some time on your horse so she can get started well, and be happy about her new job as a hunter. Good luck, and have fun!

    Tiffany! Why are you asking our opinion of how Beautiful would do? It is more important how you think she would do. It is even more important how your trainer thinks she would do. Why do you come here asking for opinions and then rebuke any offered. People are getting sick and tired of your wishy-washy attitude.

    She is a beautiful horse. She would probably do well in anything you wanted to try her in. Good Luck with her, but please quit seeking advice when you don't really want any. You seem to be seeking attention rather than advice.

    We wish.

    You just fired your last trainer days ago (by text message no less!) Miraculously, you have a new trainer and you're already planning a show season. Amazing how things work in your world.
