    need some help with the different disciplines

    I've only really ridden dressage and I would like to learn about the rest of them! I can't keep them straight. Is hunter the trail one with the jumps? Can someone help me out with the different kinds and a little description of them?

    Hunter- usually in an arena with 8 or so jumps. You have a set course and it's all about the look of the horse and rider, how they jump, the striding, and poles down. Basically- look good doing it :)

    Here is a person doing hunters: http://images.onlinecommercegroup.co...mper-Horse.jpg

    Jumpers- it's all about time and rails down. If you get the fastest time and don't have rails down, then you win.

    Here is a person doing jumpers: http://www.hunterjumpernews.com/wp-c...ne%20Photo.jpg

    Cross Country- you jump immobile objects such as logs, ditches, banks, corners, water, etc. on a set course. There is an optimum time and the person with the lowest score after the last phase of eventing (stadium/showjumping) wins. If there is a tie, the person closest to the optimum time wins.

    Here is a picture of someone doing cross country: http://regardinghorses.com/wp-conten...ss-country.jpg

    Some cross country courses DO go through the woods. But I wouldn't consider them trails.

    Cross country is done at a canter or gallop, definitely not a trail ride :)

    Well, yes of course you can't walk over the jumps haha! But I didn't know if the ones through the woods were something different, thank you! Are there differences in the style behind the riding? From dressage is it more with the reins or still the same general concept with the legs and body?

    In showjumping and cross country, you are supposed to maintain a solid leg underneath you and have a good release up the horse's neck but not LAYING on them, which inhibits their motion.

    Hunters tend to favor those who lay on their horse's necks

    I would certainly need to be on a horse to understand that better. But thank you! You've helped me figure this out a lot!
