A Hack Horse?

Yesterday at Horse of The Year Show we watched the Hack championship. If I’m really honest, I didn’t really understand how Hack classes are judged, and the championship horses were very similar. Dark bay thoroughbred type, fine horses who looked light in their movement and comfortable to ride. I got the impression that you could happily ride the Hack Champion for a couple of hours over good ground. I’m not sure I would want to hunt them or anything as they looked a bit delicate!

So I had a quick look online tonight to find out a bit more of the definition of a Hack Horse and the related classes.

Here are the links I found;
