eng pleasure, equit and hack


So i'm going to a local inexpensive show and want to know the difference in these.

Equitation is on the rail - so do I enter and stay on the rail all the time?

In pleasure - since it doesn't say it's on the rail, do I just go in and do what I want - LOL?

And what is "hack" if there are no jumps? Don't think this show has o/f classes.

i don't exactly know what you're supposed to do for each but:

equitation - judged on your position
pleasure - judged on the horse

hack - usually a flat class consisting of the following:

halt, walk, sitting trot, rising trot, extended trot, collected canter, working canter, hand-gallop, show ring reverse
