    it is pretty fun and simple. Its what I started on when I started showing english. Flat classes and hunter hack classes. =] you have to keep us updated on what you do if you do go to a show later on! We'd all love to see your progress I bet!

    This is the perfect example of a hunter hack class. hunter hack class! 11-16-08 - YouTube

    This is a medal class
    M&S Junior Medal (Raw Course) - YouTube

    She has to hand gallop the fence before the trot fence normally there is a halt some where in there, or maybe its just been the shows I've been to. But any ways note the sharper turns than an actual hunter class. =]

    The only thing about the hunter hack class I noticed is that you are in the arena with the rest of your class and show all at the same time. About that, I was just wondering what is that like? Sometimes I get nervous when I ride with other horses for some reason. When I was 10 and had lessons I would not always ride with others because I progressed faster then others, but I usually did have group lessons. I don't know why, but is there a problem with other in the arena?

    Just to clarify, medal and equitation classes are judged on the rider only. Hunters are judged on the horse, their way of going, and style of jumping. However, even though only the rider is judged in a medal class, you need a good horse to help you perform everything they ask of you!
    Personally, I would start in the hunter or equitation ring, just because the basic skills that you will need are stressed here. The ability to make nice, smooth turns, keeping an even pace, finding a good distance, and- in equitation- your riding/position overall. Because jumpers are based on time, it can be easy to forget about the quality of your ride in the beginning and just focus on speed, which isn't what you want right now.
    I think it's important to try everything out eventually, though, because it makes you well-rounded as a rider to be competent at each.
