A Hunter Breeding horse is carefully bred to have the conformation and athleticism to become successful over fences, and the Sallie B. Wheeler/USEF/USHJA Hunter Breeding National Championships boast a wide array of graduates who have gone on to be successful in the sport. Proof that form turns to function, the USHJA recognizes these horses that started their careers in Hunter Breeding and continued on to successful careers under saddle and over fences.
