Show Jumpers for sale on ehorses

Show jumping has been a popular equestrian activity for over a century. Part of its appeal is that it is an exciting and skillful sport which audiences can enjoy as well as participants. Riders who buy Show Jumpers usually choose a horse or Pony to meet the needs of their level of experience. Some riders will be happy to compete at Riding Club level, in which case a willing allrounder horse is all that is usually required. Others may wish to develop their careers to a professional level. In this case, they will often approach experts who sell a show jumper that has been selectively bred for skill in jumping. These are generally Warmblooded Horses, with the right conformation and attitude.

Use and characteristics of Show Jumpers

Top ranking horses on the show jumping circuit are often described as “bold”. Whatever their breeding, a show jumper needs to show courage and commitment when approaching fences. Most advanced adult competitors will buy a show jumper of 16 hands or more (64 inches/163 cm). Some breeders and trainers will also sell a show jumper that is pony-sized for juniors who compete over lower fences. “Scope” refers to the athleticism the horse displays when it flies over the jump. Riders look for horses with a good length of stride, a capacity to spring from the hocks as they lift into the air, and a superb “bascule”, the trajectory that the horse makes to clear the jump cleanly with a rounded back. Horses need to be fast and agile to compete in speed events, as well as powerful and focused to succeed in Puissance classes.

Origin and history of breeding Show Jumpers

Although humans have been riding horses for thousands of years, there was little need for any horse and rider to jump large obstacles when riding across country until early modern times. It was mainly the enclosure of open land that encouraged riders to start clearing man-made hedges and fences. Riding hard and fast at fences and ditches became part of the tradition of fox hunting, particularly in Britain and Ireland, and this, in turn, developed into other active cross-country sports such as steeplechasing. The requirement for bigger, bolder, more athletic horses also suited military needs, and for a long time, the two went together in the hunting field. Hunter Horses were often part-bred Thoroughbred Horses. Spectators enjoyed watching the horses jump but it wasn’t always possible to see them across country. In 1866, the first jumping event in an arena in Paris immediately proved to be a hit with spectators. The first “lepping” classes were held in Dublin in 1869, and in England in 1881. Women participated at a relatively early stage and show jumping quickly became a sport in which women competed equally against men. It was an Olympic sport by 1912. Captain Federico Caprilli started a revolution in jumping by promoting riding with shorter stirrups in the forward seat, which is much more comfortable for the horse and allows for it to have greater freedom of movement. Horses began to be selectively bred for show jumping ability from the 1920s onward, with the military still dominating the sport until the middle of the twentieth century.

Show Jumpers in equestrianism

By the 1960s, show jumping was a globally popular televised sport, and European warmblooded breeds such as the German Warmbloods and the Selle Français were very successful. Irish Sport Horses and Thoroughbreds also ranked highly in international competitions. However, one of the most famous showjumpers ever was Stroller, a 14.2 hand (58 inches/147 cm) tall pony which won an Olympic silver medal.
