“JR HUNTER” – 1999 APPALOOSA STALLION – HYPP N/N
2X WORLD CHAMPION – RESERVE WORLD CHAMPION SIRE
“JR HUNTER”, a 2-time World Champion, is a natural moving English Stallion. He is known for his elegant sweepy trot, and a soft, fluid, deep hocked canter. His movement in the Show Ring, as well as his color, coat pattern, and elegant head and neck, are eye catching to all. “JR” is the son of Hall of Fame Stallion, “The Hunter”, and by “Rockability”, the producer of Multiple World Champions. His good minded disposition, color, confirmation and movement, are only a few of his outstanding traits he is passing on to his foals.
Due to limited showing, it was not until 2006, under the guidance and training of Mike and Cindy Mergaert, “JR” achieved an impressive show career in Hunter Under Saddle and Hunter In Hand.

“JR” is a son of the Hall of Fame Stallion “THE HUNTER” and by ROCKABILITY (by Rock Star), the producer of multiple World Champions. “JR” has everything necessary to exceed your expectations; size, conformation, movement, and color, are only some of his outstanding traits which are now being passed on to his foals.
JR Hunter was wonderful to work with and show. He is very even tempered and easy to work with. We really enjoyed showing and hauling JR. He was an asset to our show string.Cindy Mergaert

My name is Whizzer Baker and I have been an Appaloosa judge for many years and had the opportunity to judge many fine Appaloosa stallions. JR Hunter is definitely one of the better ones I have seen over the years. He is a very clean mover and excellent performer in the English division of the shows. He moves just that nice now in his pasture since he left the riding ring and came here.He Is a magnificent man who shows his greatness in the offspring he has fathered. His attitude and excellence is there and ready for you.Whizzer Baker
