So in working hunter pony should we:

. use black dressage gear or brown jumping gear?
. Use flash strap on noseband or use plain cavesson?

Jumps are only 50cm and 55cm so I can use dressage gear, but maybe would be more stylish in the jumping gear?

Also what bits are allowed? I usually use kimblewick for jumping but can switch to snaffle if needs be.

Thanks

There is a difference between a Working Hunter and a Show Hunter- working hunters have to jump as well as do a flat work out, Show Hunters only do a flat workout with no extended trot but with a gallop
Show hunters are usually shown in straight cut saddles (eg show or dressage type) while working hunters are allowed to use all purpose or jumping saddles
