Hunter under saddle

hunter-on-deck.jpgAppaloosa World Championship Youth Show competitors in a hunter-under-saddle class keep their horses moving as they wait for the call to enter the show ring. Much like the on-deck circle at a baseball game, participants use the staging area to loosen up, think about what they will need to do to make a hit with the judges and make any adjustments to equipment or strategy. They’ve already been through countless hours of lessons and practice. They’ve lived through similar experiences and certainly know what to do and how to do it. Sometimes the hard part is recreating all the good moves you and your horse have made outside the ring and making a great impression when it counts for the chance to take home a ribbon or trophy from the biggest event of the season.
