Hunter Questions

I’m not experienced in the Morgan hunter divisions. I was wondering if those of you who show hunter (flat classes) could say your opinions on the newer-style hunters with more motion. Is this considered more desirable to have motion up front in hunter classes these days? I have seen some who appear to me to…
