    She actually said in one of her earlier posts that Saddleseat was English/Country/Park (for her), and that if she wanted an English horse, she meant a saddleseat horse for English pleasure :wink:

    Is the she you are referring to me? lol



    Ok so from all of everyone's fantastic info:

    Sadleseat is the second video with "Gaited" horses high stepping etc for shows.
    Hunt Jumping is jumping.
    Dressage is dressage.
    Hunt Seat is "English" pleasure riding.
    And English encompasses all of the above.
    BUT everyone has their own slightly different interpretations of each.

    :confused: correct?

    Btw: If I get an English horse, I want to do jumping. :)

    SO much to learn! :) Ok, so what are the different types of jumping? I know cross country, and show jumping, but are there other types then? Is there really a big difference in the training and tack and style and such? Could a horse trained to jump one way just start jumping the other way if you took them onto a course, or would it involve some training in the new type of jumping?

    There's Hunter Over Fences, there's foxhunting, hunt trials, Steeplechase, I guess you could say, haha.

    I would say the styles could be different. Like the Hunter Over Fences horse would be nicely groomed, braided, etc. but the Eventer horse would be nicely groomed, but not braided. Tack's appeared to be different between the two (like the noseband they're using for the bridle, etc.)

    You could take a horse that's Hunter Over Fences, if he jumps keenly enough, out to the cross country course if they like being out in the open and won't spook from the fences.

    More educated people can explain better than I can, haha.

    im really not the jumping-queen, but here's what i [think] I know.. :rolleyez:

    I guess hunter over fences is like. about control, and looking "good", and having correct form, or whatever.

    and show jumping is more of 'dont knock a jump over and go fast' sort of thing.

    then cross country and steeple chasing., well i dont know much about that.

    xD anyone help me out here?
