Basic difference between diciplines

Hi all!
Im super new to english riding but so far I love it! I am looking for basic descriptions/differences of all the different english disciplines in show.
Show jumpers
English pleasure
Hunt seat (is this the same as hunters?)
And any others?
Thanks!! And also, how common is steeplechase?

Wikipedia is probably your best bet for getting a good description of all those different disciplines

There are quite a few threads on the differences between Hunters and Jumpers as well.

Hunter/Jumper is the same thing as hunters, specifically hunter over fences. Huntseat is the style. The other english style is saddleseat. So hunters, eventing, show jumping, equitation would all fall under huntseat.

This thread has good information on the difference between Hunters and Jumpers, they are not the same thing.

Differences between hunters and jumpers?

That is not correct. These forms of riding are all different.

That's why I didn't try to differentiate the different hunter/jumper disciplines- I knew I couldn't do them any real justice! Anything beyond dressage and eventing and I'm likely to get it wrong.
