Riders fly high in the jumper ring.

The Country Classic 2010

Hunter Creek Farm once again hosted The Country Classic, one of the largest hunter-jumper horse shows on the west coast.

Hunter competition is based on the traditions of the hunt field. Turnout is as important as completing a clean and rhythmic course.

Jumpers go higher and faster over flashy jumps in competition against the clock.

The athletic effort of riding horses over fences requires a special trust between both members of the team.
