HUS & Equitation Points

I was just wondering if someone could explain these two terms to me? What does HUS stand for and how do you earn these points in show? I have never shown before so I am just wondering what it means if a horse has earned these, Thanks

HUS - hunter under saddle

Equitation points - are points received based on a rating of your equitation eg; position

If the horse is a certain breed, like QH, App, Paints, the classes at breed shows have points that are awarded that count towards the horse's permanent record, and for qualifying for the World show with QH. I'm guessing that's what they are referring to.

Thank you so much for your responses, it makes more sense to me now I have been looking at lots of for sale ads and this helps make things clearer for me.

To earn points in AQHA:
3 in class: 1st = .5point
5 in class: 1st = 1 point, 2nd = .5 point
10 in class: 1st = 2 pts, 2nd=1pt, 3rd=.5pt
15 in class: 1st=3pts, 2nd=2pts, 3rd=1pt, 4th=.5pt
20 in class: 1st=4pts, 2nd=3pts, 3rd=2pt, 4th=1pt, 5th=.5pt

This goes on. The max amount you can get is 9 points at one time under one judge.

Point accumulations vary from discipline to discipline.

HUS is Hunter Under Saddle.

Equitation is judged on rider position, but at higher levels, is also judge on how well the rider rides the horse through a course etc. (more choices on an equitation course for striding, roll backs etc)

Points are accumulated by a rider for equitation. Each placement earns them points. Those points are then multiplied by the amount of riders in attendance and are carried through the show season. Higher leveled shows usually place from the top eight to ten riders in divisions. For hunters, the points go with the horse. The horse's placements accumulates points, multiplied by the number of horses in the class. Highest points win, usually the same--top eight to ten.

Points go as so forth:
1st place-7pts
2nd place-5 pts
3rd place-4pts
4thplace- 3pts
5th place- 2pts
6th place -1 pt

Then, take how many in each class. So, let's say you got a first out of ten riders. You'd earn 70pts. How that helps.
