Simon Reynolds: Should hunter weight divisions be reviewed? *H&H VIP*

  • The most common question I get asked by show hunter riders is which category their horse should be in. The current divisions laid out by Sport Horse Breeding (GB) (SHB(GB)) are: lightweight hunters to carry up to 12st 7lb; middleweight hunters to carry 12st 7lb up to 
14 stone; and heavyweight hunters to carry over 14 stone.
