    Are divisions the same as classes?

    At a show I'm going to the classes are $15 but on the form there are divisions then numbers underneath for what's in that division. Example:

    Division 7: Pregreen hunter 2'6"
    22. Over fences 23. Over fences 24. Under saddle

    Is the division the class or is whats below he division thing the classes?

    Division is the age group, like seniors, juniors, etc., or experience level like novice, green, maiden.

    Just as a comment... This question could have been easily answered in the other thread you had going.

    By a show having divisions, they can break down the horses/people into groups, so that it is more fair. Kids vs kids, adults vs adults, green horses vs green horses. It wouldn't be very fair for a little short stirrup kid to be competing against an Adult Amateur. Sometimes in a large division (50+ horses for example) in an adult class, they will make the age divider 35. So 18 to 34's will compete against each other, and those over 35 will compete against each other. (Easy example, not necessarily true!)

    The numbers you see below the division are the class numbers. The pre-Green division will be made up of class 22, 23 and 24.
