Hunters

Hunter horses compete on mostly sand or synthetic surfaces, and are judged on their movement and way of going while demonstrating gaits in either a flat class, or completing a course of obstacles in an over fence class. Many times, lighter shoes such as the Kerckhaert Aluminum Comfort or the Kerckhaert Aluminum Triumph are used on the front feet, to minimize the effect of horseshoes on the horses gait.
