Hunt Seat Riding
What is hunt seat riding? Hunt seat riding is a very popular style of English riding. Hunt seat style helps the horse to balance over fences or cross country, with the correct rider’s position mirroring the horse’s movement.
There are two types of competitive hunt seat riding, hunters and equitation. In the hunter ring, horses are judged on movement, form, and manners. The rider is judged on position, neatness of attire, and how well the rider can control their horse. While riding hunt seat equitation, only the rider is judged, while jumping or on the flat. In hunt seat equitation there might be a pattern which you need to memorize consisting of backing up, turning on the haunches, and counter canter.
