Hacks and hunters, also called hunter hack, is an English pleasure show class where the riders perform on the flat at a walk, trot, canter and hand gallop, and then jump two low fences. Scoring is based on the horse and riders’ manners, gait, and conformation and their ability to jump the fences cleanly. Virtually nothing is known about this event in 1900, which has never again been on the Olympic Program. The title was won by [Louis Napoléon Murat], who was the great-nephew of the Emperor Napoléon I of France, and the great-grandfather of the actor René Auberjonois. Two women competed, Italian [Elvira Guerra] and France’s [Moulin], whose first name is not known.
