2018 WINTER EQUESTRIAN FESTIVAL
Hunt seat competitions are based upon elegant
traditions arising from the foxhunt. Hunters differ
from jumpers because they are judged on the style,
movement, and technical proficiency of the horse and
rider within the constraints of the set course design.
Hunters should display jumping ability, manners, style,
an even pace, and quality.
An acronym for Concours Dressage International, a
dressage competition recognized by the FEI. As CDI-W,
there are World Cup qualifying or World Cup classes
at the show, as CDIO there are Olympic qualifying or
Olympic classes at the show.
