English riding in 4-H

Not sure what classes would be good for us, but I think maybe equitation over fences- that's judged on rider, not horse, right?I was just wondering if you guys could tell me what classes are available for english rider in 4-H other than English Pleasure and what is expected of horse and rider in each class.
Thanks guys!

I would guess that different areas offer different classes.

In my neck of the woods the divisions are Pony, Junior (age of rider) and Senior (age of rider).

In the division there are two over fences classes, one hunter and one equitation, two under saddle classes, one hunter and one equitation and one hunter hack class (a flat class that includes two jumps).

Alwaysbehind about covered it; 4-H doesn't usually get much more involved than that in English classes in my neck of the woods.

You might look into your local 4-H central office and pick up a horse rulebook. In my state, the rulebooks have excellent descriptions of what classes are available and what is expected/required in each class. I'd expect that there's something similar published for other states.
