Description: The Hunter/Jumper Grand Prix - Don't miss the excitement, fun and adrenaline rush of this Olympic-caliber event, a showcase combining athleticism and grace.
The Hunter - The hunter can be of any age or breed but are divided by the number of years shown in the Hunter Division. Horses aren't judged on time but on conformation and their ability to maneuver the course. As a horse's ability and experience increases so does the difficulty of the course.
The Jumper - A jumper can be of any breed and is judged on its performance over jumps and speed in which it completes the course. The horse with the fastest, cleanest round (fewest rails knocked down, or faults) is the winner.
