Of course not ALL hunter riders perch. However, it is being taught more and more. Anyone who watches the Medal McClay finals will see good effective riders who still manage to look nice. I event, but I often have decent equitation, even though I've never participated in hunters.
One of my pet peeves is to see better riders still using beginner crest releases. Does anyone teach better riders to follow their horses mouths anymore without hurting them? I will sometimes use crest releases on various XC fences, but usually not in SJ.
