AQHA Hunter Under Saddle classes under watch - AQHA recently sent a letter to approved judges reminding them to judge hunter under saddle classes according to the rules. According to the letter, exhibitors and owners continue to complain that horses carrying their heads too low and/or behind the vertical are being placed, and even winning. The Official Handbook of Rules and Regulations states that, “the poll should be level with, or slightly above the withers, to allow proper impulsion behind. The head position should be slightly in front of, or on the vertical.” (Related links:  ) (Pay attention to how your resin is moving before placing it in a class.
