SPECIFICATIONS - Zone Horse of the Year

The USHJA Zone 1 Hunter Committee has created this program to provide Handy Hunter Challenges, which test skills riders and their horses might use during an enjoyable day of foxhunting combining the elements of flat and over-fences classes. A handy hunter is a horse or pony that is very easy to maneuver around a course in a ring or in the hunt field. Different elements that might be seen in a handy hunter course include, but are not limited to, fences at the gallop, rollbacks, trot fences, a gate to open and/or close from the horse's back, etc. This class may not be appropriate for a green horse/pony or a novice rider.
