The Hunter/Jumping Seat Equitation division is divided into two different types-Hunter Seat and Jumping Seat.  Both types of Equitation classes are designed to teach riders proper form and style, with riders being judged on position and style both over fences and on the flat.  Riders should be accurate and stylish while using invisible aids and trying to make their rounds seem completely effortless.

In Hunter Seat Equitation classes, courses are hunter-style courses with the majority of fences resembling those that would traditionally be found in the hunt field.  Bridles and bits permitted in the Hunter Seat Equitation classes are more traditional hunter-style tack, i.e. snaffles and pelhams along with cavesson nosebands.

In Jumping Seat Equitation classes, courses are jumper-style courses with the majority of fences and tracks resembling those that would traditionally be found in the jumper ring.  Additional jumper-type tack is permitted including gags and two or three ring bits as well as falsh, drop, and figure eight nosebands.  Additionally, if martingales are used, they must be running martingales.
