Im a beginner rider. I've been riding for a year, all english. Recently, I learn to jump at a trot and how to canter. This girl that was in my lesson jumped on her sixth lesson.
Also, I've cantered before. My lesson horse started cantering by mistake on my seventh lesson. I decided to try it out nice and proper on the lunge line. It went well. But after, she lurched in to a canter off the lunge line, real awkward and I just slid off. Don't ask me why. I just got a bunch of bruises but also this awful fear of cantering. I just got over it and started again, but I feel like an awful rider, especially with the jumping thing.
