Hunter over Fences

Hunter over FencesHunter jumpers are wonderful to watch; watching over a thousand pounds of horseflesh lifting completely off the ground is exciting! We have a local hunter-jumper trainer in our area and enjoy watching the young riders learn how to fly over fences on their confident horses.

Training for this discipline takes time, but some horses show ability as young foals, learning to clear the fences of their foal pastures, then popping right back over the fence to get back to their dams. Yes, some families of horses are talented from birth to become outstanding hunter jumpers.
