    Simplest way to explain it is it's a type of showing class, like a ridden hunter, or working hunter class, the judging is slightly different than at showing classes over here, they use slightly different tack - I think I'm right in saying that in America they use standing martingales in equitation classes, whereas you wouldn't here.

Ill get there but I truely never realised how many different types of english riding there was in america, and that they don't even do those classes in england or ireland
    There are showing classes in North America for the breeds that have 'extra' gaits beyond the usual walk, trot and canter - that you wouldn't see over here cos we don't have those breeds or ride like that
