I did a 2' hunter hack class and basically you have two flat classes w/t/c and the 3rd class you have the normal flatting, but then you line up and jump two fences at the certain height. Its judged on soundness, and way of going of the horse, more than the rider. Hope that helped!
Also, it is desireable for the horse to be moving at a nice, rythmic pace, with his head about even with the withers, if not collected a little. Good movers tend to do very well in the hunter divisions. You don't have to have perfect equitation, but you don't want to inhibit your horses movement/style in anyway. (i.e. Not releasing enough, making your horse hold his head high over the jumps instead of down near his knees)
