    Help a newbie! Half seat or sitting at the canter? Visual equitation resources?

    I decided to try out for my university's equestrian team on a whim and have no idea what I am doing! I have been doing various other disciplines in recent years and can't remember much of anything from my jumping days as a kid. Am I supposed to go into half-seat or sit at the canter? I have seen videos of people doing both. (If it matters, I won't be trying out over fences, despite having ridden for quite a while, because I have never shown and therefore can't be placed beyond WTC) And does anyone know of a good visual resource for what hunt seat equitation should look like?

    For the flat you should be sitting the canter.

    For good examples go to youtube and look up "Maclay finals, flat phase". That should give you several examples of some good equitation!
