The hunter pony, unrivalled for its quality, toughness and usefulness, has become one of the most important types of pony in Britain today. It has risen from being relatively unknown in the late 1960's to a pony of established type, outnumbering every other type of ridden show horse and pony. The authors of this book have pooled their considerable knowledge and experience to produce this guide to owning, training and showing the hunter pony. Advice is given on type, conformation and action, so that prospective judges and owners know what to look for when assessing hunter ponies, whether in the ring or with a view to purchase. Separate chapters deal with the practicalities of management and training, both on the flat and over fences. Planning a show career, show-ring turnout and ringcraft are dealt with in detail, and there are chapters on judging and coursebuilding for working hunter classes.
