Exclamation what exactly is eq?

I recently won the IEA championships and I have great eq (not trying to to brag) I was wondering exactly what eq classes mean. What is the judge looking for? I am going to the Northampton Hunter Jumper show and am planning on doing jumpers with my mare (we event) and my mom was thinking that I should find another couple of classes to do and I was thinking that I should do some eq classes but i'm not sure if my horse is right for them.

EQ is basicly your own riding form. The judge is judging you and not nessisarily your horse. Its pretty simple, sorry that wasn't very in-depth im not the best at explaning!

Eq is equitation. They judge your position and how well you ride the horse. If you just won IEA, shouldn't you already have competed in eq classes?

National or Zone IEA championship? An equitation class is pretty much what you were doing in the IEA except you are on your own horse and the competiton is going to be a little different, especially if you are doing a bigger eq class.
