The Spring Nationals have become one of the Northwest's signature show series representing for many the start of the show season. The Spring National Inaugural is a USEF "national Hunter" rated and Jumper 2 Star Horse Show with something for everyone, including the ever popular Equitation Challenge.
Hunter is a classic form of English"hunt seat" riding based on the tradition of fox hunting. Hunter competitions include both flat & over-fences classes which judge the horse's movement & form, & "equitation" classes which judge the rider's style & ability both on the flat & over-fences.
Jumper, also known as "stadium jumping"or "show jumping", is an internationally-recognized form of hunt seat riding. Jumper competition is all about speed & "clean" rounds where the horses and riders jump a course of 10-16 obstacles, the winner determined by the shortest time & fewest faults. Show jumping demonstrates the rider's skill & the horse’s energy, speed & obedience.
