I think you misunderstood my comment.

I hope the exaggerated rider position passess, not the hunter discipline!

I have a long established hunter background, I wasn't dissing the discipline, just this current trend.

This is one of the leading professional riders on the A circuit -

Lovely equitation over fences in the amatuer jumpers -

The first rider is far more experienced and a top professional. Why is his equitation so....odd....compared to the amateur over a big airy fence?

Because the fad or trend is for pros in the hunter divisions to stand way up over their horses' backs and make a big move with their uppper bodies and lay on the horse's necks to make in look like the horse is such a thrusty jumper that they can barely stay in the tack. It's silly.

I watched it at Sydney Royal a few years back with the hunter ponies :P Not sure where else though! And in a show photo gallery I saw a big grey show hunter hunter jumping :)
