New Hunter Rule changes for the 2013 competition year regarding the combining Hunter Classes are outlined below.

High Performance Hunter – fewer than 3 entries then you must combine with Second Year Green Working or Green Working. If there are still less than 3 entries then combine with First Year Green Working. When combining High Performance Working Hunter with another section, if there are different amounts of prize money or entry fees in the original sections, the combined sections will use the lower amount for both.

Green Working – if combined Green Working has fewer than 3 entries, combine with High Performance Working

Performance Hunter 3’3” or Performance Hunter 3’6” must be combined if there are fewer than 6 entries, but cannot be combined with other Hunter sections.

Conformation Hunter – When offered as two sections, if fewer than 4 entries in either Conformation section, then they must be combined

Junior Hunters - If there are fewer than 6 entries in any section divided by age and/or height, those sections must be combined with other sections.

Children’s Hunter – If Zone specifications do not address the combining and splitting of sections by the number of entries, then if there are fewer than 6 entries in any divided section, the sections must be combined.

Amateur Owner Hunter 3’3” and 3’6” – must offer at least 2 divided sections split 18-35 and 35 and over. At AA rated competition they may be divided with a floating split. If there are fewer than six entries in either divided section they must be combined. Amateur Owner Sections (sections offered divided by age) may not be split further with fewer than 30 entries.

Adult Amateur Hunter – may be divided by age of rider and this may be done using a floating split. The sections may be further divided or by age or every other number but cannot divide if there are less than 30 entries. If Zone specifications do not address the combining and splitting of sections by the number of entries, then if there are fewer than six entries in either divided section they must be combined.
