When cantering in a hunter flat class do you use a full seat? half seat? Does it matter? How about an eq class? Thank you!!

A full seat is not usually seen in a hunter flat class -- unless your horse moves better that way. A half seat that indicates (true or not) that your horse is a flowing, easy ride is the norm.

Full seats are pretty much always seen in an eq flat class. In an eq o/f class, however, people do whatever is best for their trip and their horse.
