Jumpers is an objectively judged event which is scored on the speed and number of faults accrued over a course. Faults are earned by knocking down rails, stopping at fences or going over the time allowed. These horses need to be careful and quick. Hunters is a subjectively judged event which is scored on the horse's performance. The horse's movement, manners and style over fences are all taken into account when judging this event. An ideal hunter has a long, easy stride with minimal knee action and a beautiful, round jump. Equitation is another subjectively judged event in which the rider's performance is judged. The rider's style and effectiveness are judged in the Equitation. Attire is conservative, like in the hunters, and the jumps are typically similar to those seen in the hunter ring (although the Eq can take place over jumper-style jumps) although the questions asked by the course are often more similar to those in the jumpers (e.g., lines set short or long, rollbacks, bending lines, etc.).

Hunters: Based mainly on your horses form over fences, smooth lead changes, their way of going, how easily they execute the course, ect.
Jumpers: Scored on fastest time and least amount of faults
Eq: Judged on the riders form

To make it very brief and simple:
Hunters: the horse is judged
Equitation: the rider is judged
Jumpers: whoever has the best time and the clearest round wins

Hunter - judged on the horse (not timed)

Jumper - quickest time wins (4 faults for disqualification, each fault usually 10s penalty)

Equitation - judged on the rider (not timed)
