Your horse should be in a lower, more rectangular frame with her neck held lower and less bend at the poll, as opposed to the more upright frame. Her stride should be long and cover ground, and if she's high-headed, short strided, or on a draped rein for more than a few strides, you'll be penalized. Your horse should also look like a pleasure to ride, hence the name, "hunter pleasure". I'm not sure if the rules in your area are the same as the ones here in Canada, but I hope I helped :)

Yay another HP rider!
Thanks for the tips. Not sure how it is in the Arab world, but apparently clothing styles and fads are very important in the Morgan shows, I think that's what I am worrying over the most LOL!
