I was looking at a prize list, and the SHIH in divided into Dressage type and Hunter type. (I'm sorry if this has been asked and answered before...)
How do I know what my horse is?
Thanks ahead of time!
Are you talking about on the Arabian circuit?
Aside from the basic conformational differences (which may be less relevant if this is a breed-specific class), a dressage type will show a greater natural ability to carry its weight on its hindquarters and move in an uphill fashion.
Proud COTH lurker since 2001.
Also, most shows that are offering these splits are allowing horses to cross enter.
