As the sheriff of Maretime Bay, Hitch is dedicated to helping everypony and always remembers to follow all the rules. As a result, he is very popular and respected among the Earth ponies of Maretime Bay. However, as he takes his responsibilities seriously, sometimes to the point of arrogance and overconfidence, it has led Hitch to have some moments of being self-absorbed. Whenever his orders are not adhered or even when he is not listened to, as he is not used to following others, Hitch tends to lose composure, leading to moments of panicking or ultimately following Sunny when he had no other choice.
He is also very caring and nurturing, especially towards the cute animals and critters of Equestria who often follow him around (which baffled and annoyed him for a time).
Though good-natured and having a strong sense of integrity, Hitch regrettably grew up believing the bigoted beliefs earth ponies have against unicorns and pegasi. He's a stickler for rules and quite stubborn, but his foalhood friendship with Sunny Starscout helped him maintain his sense of compassion and fairness and was what eventually convinced him to lower his guard and get to know Izzy Moonbow, Zipp Storm and Pipp Petals and form a strong and true friendship with them.
Hitch is a light amber Earth pony with chocolate brown hooves. He has various white markings - white socks on his legs, a white belly, and a white blaze. He has a short, aqua green mane and average length tail, amber eyes, and light brown eyebrows.
His cutie mark is a gold shield with a teal horseshoe in the center. There are two teal hearts on the bottom of either side of the shield.
He is frequently seen with a golden sash featuring a horseshoe emblem around his chest.
