Basic Horsemanship - Mount Up - Part 3
Hunt or forward seat riding and showing is very popular in North America, but not an equestrian Olympic discipline, as is Show Jumping. Many of today's top show jump riders, however, started out by riding in the hunter divisions of horse shows. Hunters are judged on conformation and performance standards both on the flat and over fences, while Show Jumping – sometimes called stadium jumping in America – is all about getting that clear round against all competitors. The most popular equestrian sport in Europe, Show Jumping competitions have their own horse and human heroes.
Hunter/JumperTV is all about competitions, instructional programs, documentaries of horses and riders, and everything in between. From FEI World Championships to local hunter/jumper shows – and from trainers of classic forward seat riding styles to training show jumpers or even fox hunting in Ireland, there will be something here for all English riding enthusiasts.
