The judge looks for a Hunter Type only with substance, good bone, limbs & fluent in all paces.
A quality Show Hunter Pony must instantly create the impression that it is capable of going for a fair days hunting over a variety of terrain & obstacles. Short well defined cannons must support a hunter body with sufficient forearm & second thigh for the height of the pony. It must cover the ground in all paces, with a well balanced gallop that is moving from the shoulders, with the hind legs well under & a certain amount of knee action being permitted.
Show Hunter Ponies should be quality animals showing all the breed characteristics appropriate to their section of the Welsh Stud Book, but with more substance. Generally the pony should demonstrate suitability to carry a child or suitably sized adult across country.
