Hunt style of riding

Towson Times

Hunter Seat Equitation is a division of riding that is judged on the ability and the style of the rider, who will be judged both over fences and on the flat.

In "over fences" classes, riders are judged not only on their ability to negotiate a course of jumps on their horses, but also on their style and position while they perform.

Riders should demonstrate a good understanding of not only of what the questions of the course are, but how best to answer those questions by trying to execute a smooth and consistent round using invisible aids.

All those things should be accomplished by trying to make their round seem completely effortless while their position should remain both accurate and stylish throughout the round.
