They want floaty with not a lot of knee movement as well as a long neck
A hunter pleasure class is different because the judge will pay attention to the horses manners and if they are a pleasurable horse to ride. Rather than on their type.
Depends on what kind of class you are in. Hunter under saddle the judge is looking for a horse that has a good ground covering gait and has the potential to do a course of fences. They will pay attention to how well the horse moves, and if the horse "fits" the typical hunter look.
