    the quick version:
    Hunter trials is basically a competition where its just a cross country course (similar to an ODE XC course) with a few extra obsticals such as opening a gate, walking through something scary etc etc. its judged on least amount of penalties and closest to optimum time however you are not allowed to wear a watch so its about knowing your paces (this is wear PC Pace work really comes in handy)
    You will do 2 rounds usually
    Its loads of fun, great for those starting out in eventing that want to experience XC without having to do the dressage & SJ componant :)
    Hope that helps
