Hunter/jumping seat equitation is 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, courses are hunter-style with the majority of fences resembling those that would traditionally be found in the hunt field. Jumping seat equitation courses are jumper-style, with the majority of fences and tracks resembling those that would traditionally be found in the jumper ring.
