Jumping Endorsed Class Hunter Hack An English performance class that is evaluated on manners, ﬂat work, ease of movement, and style jumping over fences.
The horse should move in the same style as a working hunter horse.
Preference will be shown to horses with correct jumping style, which means they meet a fence in stride without interrupting their rhythm.
Placing for the class shall be determined by allowing a minimum of 70 percent for individual fence work and a maximum of 30 percent for work on the ﬂat.
Contestants enter the ring and compete one at a time. 39 • • • This includes mules, donkeys, zebras, ponies, miniatures, etc. • A horse’s age is determined as of January 1 of the year born.
A horse becomes a year older on January 1 of the year following its birth.
Example: A foal born May 2004 becomes 1 year old on January 1, 2005.
For exhibition purposes, stallions 1 year of age and older will not be utilized.
Ponies shall measure 58 inches or under at the withers.
No exceptions are allowed.
All ponies must be measured before showing.
Ponies measuring more than 58 inches high will not show in any pony class.
The two associations for miniature horses (American and International) have different height requirements.
As a result, the horse project will use the one with the higher height requirement as that is more inclusive for club members and the horse program.
Therefore, miniature horses shall not measure greater than 34 inches at the withers.
Those measuring greater than 34 inches (but less than 58 inches) will be classiﬁed as a pony.
Ownership or lease of a horse is not required nor monitored by UWE.
In any class, Juniors and Intermediate riders will not be asked to mount after a dismount; Senior riders may or may not be asked to mount after a dismount.
Prohibited Tack: Draw reins, drop nosebands, martingales, tie downs, and ﬂash cavessons.
However, martingales and tie downs can be used for roping and speed classes. and the ofﬁcial time will be the average of the two times.
Reruns • If an animal escapes from the arena, a ﬂag will be dropped and watches stopped.
The contestants will get the animal back with lap-and-tap start, and time already spent will be added to the time used in qualifying plus barrier penalties, if any. • • No rerun will be given due to faulty or broken equipment furnished by either contestant.
If the judge sees he or she has made an error in ﬂagging, he or she must declare a rerun before the contestant leaves the arena.
A steer must be rerun before it is used by another contestant.
If a team records a qualiﬁed time, but the timers malfunctioned, the team will be given a rerun at a time designated by the judges and/or show ofﬁcials.
If there were any barrier penalties in the ﬁrst run, the team will have a lap-and-tap start on the rerun.
If artiﬁcial horns are jerked off, contestants will receive a rerun on the same steer with no penalties added other than barrier penalties.
If an animal fails to break the neck rope and time is ofﬁcially started by the contestant, that animal belongs to the contestant.
However, if time is started by the animal and the header and heeler remain behind the plane of the barrier for approximately 10 seconds, the animal should be considered a sulking animal and replaced using the “misdraw” procedure. • • • • • • • • •
