I love hunters because they are always turned out so impeccably. A hint: if you see a photo of a jumping horse and rider, you can always tell whether it's taken in hunter or jumping competitions by counting the braids on a mane. No braiding at all or only some 10-15 braids: jumper. +20 braids, super neat ones: hunter. Hunters seldom have boots or bandages on their legs, no hood and in most cases a simple snaffle bit, D-ring seems to be fashionable.
