Why are there 3 jumping classes in one division?

I was looking at the list of classes for a show I might be going to. And for each division they have two flat classes, pleasure and equitation, that makes sense. But then they have three jumping classes. And they all say over fences or cross rails, depending on the division. So I'm assuming they're all courses. I thought that there were only supposed to be two courses and one class for equitation over two jumps. This is for hunters by the way.

Here's the show program:

Depends on the show. Around here when I was showing in the hunters, we usually had two flat classes (Equitation and Hunter under saddle) and 4 over fences classes, equalling a total of 6 classes for one division.

That sounds about normal for a hunter show. Here we have 2 flat classes (Equitation on the flat and Hunter under saddle) and then anywhere from 2-6 over fences classes (plus an Eq over fences class too) depending on the length/rating of the show.

Yeah, ummm, I'm little on the novice side I thought maybe there was some sort of standard every show went by.
