What do judges take points off for in the hunter ring and what do they look for?
Judges are looking for an even steady pace. Not to fast not to slow. Get your distance to the fence and don't mess with the horse to much. Let the horse open its stride and do their job. Judges also look at the horses jumping style. They want a round jump with tucked even knees (the horse). As the rider it is also important to have a light stylish seat and proper jump position.
